Highlights from the exhibition
Giorgio Preca (1909-1984) was an outstanding Maltese artist who spent a good part of his life in Rome and attracted attention from international entities. Throughout his career he was ready to take risks and present his individual artistic language even if the public in Malta was many a time not ready for such innovation.
While living in Malta, his contemporaries looked up to him as a leading figure who pushed forward a new Modernist spirit. The drive for modernism persisted during his sojourn in Italy, as confirmed by the long list of solo and collective exhibitions he took part in, and the ensuing international reviews. He engaged with the Roman artistic scene, both as a foreigner living there as well as an international artist.
