Some say that the design was originally done by his son, Vittorio. Palazzo de Piro upholds a noble tradition of taste and grandeur.
In 1868, Marquis Alexander de Piro D’Amico Inguanez and his wife Orsola made it their home. Their son Giuseppe became a bishop and the founder of the Missionary Society of St. Paul. He is in the process of canonization and might soon become Malta’s second modern saint, after St George Preca.
In 2005, Palazzo de Piro was acquired by The Metropolitan Cathedral Chapter, also responsible for the Mdina Cathedral and the Mdina Cathedral Museum, and extensive restoration works were undertaken to create a venue of cross-cultural, artistic and social dialogue.
Part of the building is used for catering purposes and one can enjoy the bastion walls and the view over Malta while enjoying a meal or a refreshment.
