Agreement signed to strengthen the conservation of national archives

Malta’s National Archives and the Association of Conservationists and Restorers signed a collaboration agreement aimed at exchanging information between both sides.

The agreement was signed on the occasion of the European Day of Restoration and Conservation. National Archivist Dr Charles Farrugia said that the agreement should further strengthen the archives heritage and its conservation.

“We really believe that in archives heritage and its conservation, only professional people should carry out this work. This agreement will lead to exchange of information, for example, with assistance even to members of this association in activities and communication. This association will work closely with us in all matters related to conservation of the archives heritage”, Dr Farrugia stated.

The President of the Association of Conservationists and Restorers, James Licari, said that documents at the National Archives greatly assist their members.

“This will strengthen conservation between professionals who carry out restoration and the archives. It is an important value to us that our members do research before they carry out work, and this arrangement will help in research”.

Mr Licari added that the agreement was signed at an opportune moment when Europe is commemorating works carried out in art conservation and therefore, Malta is also showing the due importance to this sector.
