A career in book and paper conservation has taken Theresa Zammit Lupi from Sinai to Switzerland, Cambridge UK to Cambridge Massachusetts and many other places besides. We catch up with her in this first episode of the newly launched podcast series, Treasures from Malta, hosted by Francesca Balzan and produced by Fondazzjoni Patrimonju Malti.
Theresa takes us on a whirlwind tour of the incredible paper treasures she has worked on. We delve into her ground-breaking research, publications and academic side but we also discover more.
Tango dancing and bell ringing? Yes, its all in the mix as well!
