The Khalili Collection of Spanish Damascene traveled across the water to be on display in Malta. The Exhibition Metal Magic: Spanish Treasures from the Khalili Collections has been hosted by Heritage Malta and viewed at the Auberge de Provance, now the National Museum of Archaeology.
On 7th November 2010 The Prime Minister of Malta, Dr Lawrence Gonzi, inaugurated the exhibition and it was opened to the public from 8th November to the 29th April 2011.
Malta has a long connection with Spain, once being part of the Kingdom of the Two Sicilies, which belonged to Spain. It was then given to the Order of St John which included many Spanish Knights. A good relationship between Malta and Spain has continued to the present day.
