At a Sitting of November 12, 2014 of the House of Representatives, a resolution was passed granting Palazzo de La Salle (219, Republic Street, Valletta), by way of temporary lease for a period of 30 years to the Malta Society of Arts, Manufactures & Commerce.
This with effect from the date of the relative deed.
The Malta Society of Arts, Manufactures & Commerce has been holding Palazzo de La Salle as it’s premises since 1923.
The Government granted the Palace ‘rent free’ but reserved the right to withdraw this concession subject to six months notice.
This right was never exercised.
With determination and the usual frugality the MSA is prepared to go ahead with the remaining restoration projects which will bring Palazzo de La Salle a worthy visiting building at the south end of Valletta.
