The visual art exhibition ‘Memories from Mars’ by Lucio Dubini which originally opened on 5 March 2020 at our Art Galleries, was closed down a few days after launching, due to the then emerging coronavirus. The exhibition has now re-opened and will remain open to visitors until 16 September 2020. Viewers who had planned to visit the exhibition but hadn’t managed to do so in March, can now see the colourful art show while respecting new social distancing measures.

When visiting, the following Safety Measures will apply:

1. Visitors will be obliged to wear a mask inside the premises
2. MSA personnel will check visitors’ temperatures before being allowed to proceed into the Palazzo
3. The personnel will be advising visitors to use hand sanitizers upon arrival
