Exhibition of scent bottles at Palazzo Falson
The ongoing Scent Bottles: from Ceremony to Seduction exhibition is the third in a series of exhibitions being organised at Palazzo Falson Historic House Museum in Mdina. Treasured as a rare and precious substance, scent has played a significant role in ritual and religion, myth and medicine, splendour and seduction for some 4,000 years. This exhibition is showcasing the bottles created to contain the scents of the centuries, tracing their history from their early origins up to recent years. (independent.com.mt)
Maltese Prime Minister lands in Tripoli
Prime Minister Lawrence Gonzi was taken on a tour of the war-ravaged streets of Misurata this afternoon after meeting Libyan Prime Minister Abdurrahim El-Keib in Tripoli. Malta had provided a lifeline to Misurata during the siege, with several ships carrying humanitarian aid having left from Malta and slipped into Misurata harbour, from where they then ferried injuried Libyans and journalists. The Maltese delegation was given a warm welcome by the city council when it arrived in the city this afternoon. Dr Gonzi's first stop was to a makeshift museum where pictures of all those who were killed in the conflict are on display. (timesofmalta.com)
