Restoration of ‘Fontispizju’- Mosaic panel in pediment dedicated to the Assumption of Virgin Mary
Application for the Conservation and Restoration of the Mgarr (Malta) Parish Church
Over the years the mosaic panels of the ‘Assumption of Mary’ forming part of the pediment located over the columns of the front elevation of the Mgarr parish church are becoming loose in some locations, with some lacuna of mosaic.
An application at the local Planning Authority has been submitted for the conservation and restoration of the poly-chrome mosaic panel located in the triangular pediment ( also known as Fontispizju in Maltese ) depicting the ‘Assumption of Mary’ so as to preserve this work of art which forms an integral part of the church aesthetic and also, to pass it on to future generations of the community of Mgarr – Malta, for the admiration of both local citizens and tourists alike, since the Mgarr parish church is the pride of the community of Mgarr – Malta.
