Item description for Casa Rocca Piccola, Valletta by Nicholas De Piro...
Casa Rocca Piccola is the lived-in home museum of the De Piro family an ancient Maltese lineage. The history of Casa Rocca Piccola goes back over 400 years to an era during which the Knights of St John decided to build themselves a prestigious city to rival European capitals. Palaces were designed for prestige and aesthetic beauty in most of Vallettas carefully planned streets; and great bastion walls fortified the new sixteenth-century city. Casa Rocca Piccola houses a little museum called costumes & collections which is worth a visit. There are also the World War II shelters, giving one an idea of how people lived during the bombing of Malta. A visit to Casa Rocca Piccola is an opportunity to see inside one of the last private unconverted Valletta palaces still lived-in today.
