Pawlu Curmi ‘Il-Pampalun’: Il-Bniedem, Il-Leġġenda

1 February 2024 - 3 March 2024

Pawlu Curmi ‘il-Pampalun’ was a person whose contributions to Malta’s carnival cannot be ignored. Born on the 12th December 1930 in Valletta, ‘Il-Pampalun’ was the 12th child out of 13, and from a young age, he showed a particular interest in carnival by helping out his father Giovanni with creating carnival floats and grotesque masks. From that point, his career in the carnival sphere continued and evolved as he began to touch upon elements relating to dance, choreography and much more.

Beyond carnival, ‘il-Pampalun’ was a person with a variety of interests, with a character who not only left an impact u carnival’s and Valletta’s communities, but who also left a colourful legacy behind him. Join us during this exhibition curated and researched by Mario Coleiro as we explore the life of the man, the legend.
