This project aims to be the first significant study of the printed image in Malta covering printmaking, print collecting, print history and culture, and illustrated books through the study of the print collection of Saverio Marchese, a man of letters, poet, writer, art historian and art collector whose collection led to the founding of the Mdina Cathedral Museum. The collection amounts to approximately 4,500 prints, from all European schools, between the 15th and the 19th centuries. Only the exhibited Durer prints have ever been studied. The research involved cataloguing the collection, studying the 12 extant albums from which the prints were removed, and studying the purchase inventory of Count Saverio Marchese which holds much information on the European print market.

This is a project led by scholars in Sicily and we are looking for incunabula in Malta to collect data, catalogue them, include their details in the MEI and ISTC databases, and ultimately issue a publication. Apart from the collection of 60 incunabula at the National Library, most incunabula in Malta are hidden in convents and church libraries of the many religious orders.
