A dream come true! It all started five years ago.

It was already two years since I had started restoring this beautiful historical place in Valletta – Valletta Lucente.

When a problem, one of the many, cropped up: the old floor tiles.

Yes the house was full of these beautifully designed tiles with so many different colours and yet all complimented each other. Where is the problem? The tiles became one big worry when imminent decisions on how the installation for the necessary construction works had to be done. How the necessary services had to be passed, installed and commissioned and at the same time safeguard this unique feature. The easiest way was to demolish, do the works and install new tiles… But how could I do that?

The more I looked at these old tiles the more and more I was falling in love. Eventually I decided that these tiles shall be taken off one by one, carefully number them, install whatever needed to be installed and reposition every single tile as intact.

Creating Unending Memories

I discussed the idea with friends in the field and close friends to find the right way how to proceed and create the first Lucentini. Discussions and ideas on the type of material to be used, the right size, the weight, type of depictions, topics and a bunch of other issues as one can imagine. Thanks to great friends that dedicated time, day after day, to listen to my dream and understand the idea, we managed to find a way to start the process from the drawing board to the production of the actual first Lucentini.

After dedicative time for networking, for travelling and meeting various artists – from the ceramicist to the actual painters, at the beginning of 2019 we managed to get a team onboard! A team that has had the patience to listen to my idea and eventually understand and help me create this aim…a  team that really made me proud.

A  personal pride which is felt at the inception of each and every Lucentini produced.

A pride that unitedly we have collaborated successfully to bring together at its best, our never ending history, our heritage, our culture and above all our Love for Art.
