The Vernon Club near the upper Barrakka in Valletta, now the Central Bank was built in 1872.
The British military authorities decided to build a gymnasium for the garrisons in Valletta and Floriana.
The Valletta Military Gymnasium was completed in March 1873.

Later, the First World Warr brought to Malta a large number of wounded and sick soldiers, after the Gallipoli campaign in 1915.
There arose the question of providing entertainment for these troops -
the Valletta Gymnasium was turned into a soldiers’ and sailors’ institute.

The vast majority of Maltese were against the building, spoiling as it did the skyline of the bastions.
This show the Cultural maturity of the People, led as they were by educated and evolved Leaders.
Imagine how they would have greeted the Squalid Socialists flats opposite the Piano Paprata.

This hideous, soulless Masonic inspired building, designed by a 32nd Degree Mason.
A structure, Egyptian-Masonic in feeling, "Modern" completely discordant with the rest of Baroque Valletta.
The dumbing down of a People over just two generations.

And the same with our Courts, again in Valletta, built between 1965 and 1971 -
on the rubble of the destroyed site of Auberge d'Auvergne - this was hit by a mine during WW2.
Again the majority of Maltese was against this Neo-Classical building, again at odds with the Baroque.

Modern Man a product of "Modernity", Equality, sameness, conformity: accepting the mediocre, the standardized.
A lowering of standards, of excellence and of High Culture.
The dumbing down of a People.

Strange bedfellows

Heartfelt congratulations to the staff of the Restoration Directorate for an excellent job on the frontage of Palazzo Ferreria in Valletta.
Unfortunately, this awesome façade further magnifies the shameful mess just opposite: the roofless so-called ‘theatre’.
