La Passeggiata622 viewsDefinition: As evening falls and the harsh sun inches out of the your favorite piazza, an evening ritual is bound to begin, the Italian/Maltese tradition of passeggiata, a gentle stroll (slow! think slow!) through the main streets of the old town.
Locals tend to dress up for passeggiata, and tourists are usually easy to spot in their shorts and fanny packs. Older folks sit along the route, nursing a beer or a glass of wine in the bar, and watching for things to gossip about; la passeggiata is where new romances are on display as well as new shoes.

The Opera House 1946526 viewsJohn Clark
The old opera house site will be converted into an open-air theatre that will incorporate the bombed ruins according to plans by Italian architect Renzo Piano to be unveiled this week. (22 June 2009)
The plans envisage a 1,200-seat roofless theatre, built around the ruins and other remains stored elsewhere over the years. It will all be enhanced with state-of-the-art technology that will give the place the scenographic and acoustic properties expected from a contemporary theatre. See Times of Malta Video
