Wow! Thanks for these two pictures of the roundabout. Does the Casa Leone still exist I wonder?

Think so. From http://www.visitmalta.com/santa-venera .Midway between the old and new capitals of Mdina and Valletta, Santa Venera grew in importance as a staging post en route. Its position meant the village was always the focus of transport and communication projects serving the two cities. First was the Wignacourt acquaduct, completed in 1615, built to solve the problems of Valletta's drinking water supply. Today, Santa Venera is an urban area comprising residential and industrial estates. It has several imposing villas, now government buildings. Of special interest are Casa Leone, and the nearby Romeo Romano Gardens.
