EVENT: VISIT TO BOSCO MARENGO

A group of members went to Bosco Marengo for our twinned club’s charter anniversary which was celebrated on Saturday, May 14 2022.

Our twinned Club members had prepared a full programme of events visiting places of interest around the region and also including a visit to the “Blind Dogs for the Blind Foundation” in Bergamo.

This visit gave us an opportunity to assess the possibility to get a dog thereby
fulfilling our project to present this dog to the Malta Society for the Blind.

A group of Club members paid a visit to Alessandria for the Charter celebrations of our twinned club Bosco Marengo Santa Croce.  The Lions of our twinned Club prepared a programme of activities for the visit. 

The highlight of this event was a visit to the Lions Dog for the Blind Training Centre at Limbiate soon after arrival, where the group was greeted by Lion Giovanni Fossati who founded the centre.  After a briefing on the training system adopted to train dogs, mostly Labradors, the group were taken around the centre.  One of the centre’s trainers took a dog around a track having various obstacles that a blind person could encounter on the road.  It was amazing to see how the dog reacted to such situations.  Lion Treasurer Alex Arena, who was in charge of our Club’s project to acquire a dog for the blind, and Lion Giovanni Fossati discussed details about this matter and hopefully, now the Club would bring this project to fruition.

Talk : The Great World Atlas

Lions Club Sliema

Wednesday, 18th May 2022 begins at 19.00 sharp and ends at 19.30 at the
The Imperial


The Great World Atlas by Joan Barwell

Joan Barnwell, from Ireland, will introduce The Greatest Atlas Ever Published – the Atlas Maior – which was published in Amsterdam in 1662.

This talk about art, travel and discovery in the 17th Century.

Joan Barnewell from The Chester Beatty Museum in Dublin gave us a presentation on The Atlas Maior which was published by Joan Bleau in Amsterdam in 1662.
 
Joan spoke about 17th century printing and map-making during the Dutch golden age of exploration and she showed us some really beautiful hand painted maps which are true works of art.  They were decorated showing peoples of the regions and their dress, animals, flora and fauna, ships and their flags and bird’s eye views of cities –  and included were some lovely maps of Malta, Gozo and Valletta which were printed during the reign of Grandmaster Cotoner. 
 
Joan ended her talk by showing paintings by two great artists of the Dutch golden age, de Hooch and Vermeer, which included maps from the Atlas Maior.  These highlighted the importance, not just of exploration and trade, but also the role these maps played as a status symbol in Dutch society.
 
The Atlas Maior was considered so prestigious that it was presented to royalty and foreign embassies as a symbol of the artistic, intellectual and commercial power of the Netherlands.  It is a truly remarkable production and the maps are a real feast for the eye, so it is not difficult to see why it is referred to as The Greatest Atlas Ever Published !
