Notte Bianca to light up Valletta on September 29
Notte Bianca, organised by the Malta Council for Culture and The Arts, is once again set to light up the cityscape of Valletta on September 29 with a spectacular nocturnal celebration of people, culture and arts.
State palaces and museums will open their doors for the enjoyment of patrons showcasing visual art exhibitions and theatre performances, while the streets and piazzas will host some of the finest local and international musicians and dancers.
130 activities will be organised throughout 60 different locations in Valletta.
Artistic director Peter Busuttil told a press conference today that this year's edition will include a novel location – on board a floating vessel.
He also said that this will be his final edition as artistic director of Notte Bianca.
Culture Minister Mario de Marco said that despite Valletta being the cultural, administrative and commercial centre of Malta, it nevertheless offers new and unique experiences to be discovered upon each visit to the city.
He said that Notte Bianca provides a showcase to help Maltese people appreciate and understand the country's heritage.
The entrance to Notte Bianca will be through City Gate, whilst patrons are asked to use the Central Bank Annex (St. James Counterguard passageway) as the exit point
