Nix Mangiare Steps

Oh Signore! Mi povero! Miserabile! Nix padre, nix madre, nix mangiare for sixteen days per Jesu Christo.”

"The "Nix Mangiare Stairs" of Valletta are the congregating place of an army of mendicants of every species, men, women, and children, who exhibit all manner of deformities, both real and artificial, as well as every grade of dirt and squalor. In landing and making one's way up to the main thoroughfare of the city, it is necessary to run the gauntlet of this horde of poverty-stricken people. At the base of these "nothing to eat stairs," the longshoremen and fishermen also congregate." There's more!
