Whistles

From Ritual to Toys

Palazzo Falson

The first in a series of small, but highly focused temporary exhibitions about particular themes, was put up at Palazzo Falson between the 30th April and the 21st of June, 2009. The exhibition on whistles, brought together more than 150 whistles loaned from Maltese private and museum collections, ranging from antique Maltese whistles to bird calls, in a huge variety of materials, shapes and sounds. The historic, folkloric and musical significance of these sound-making instruments was highlighted. An audio visual display within the exhibition hall also permitted the viewer to hear some of the whistles on display.
