VBL Group, the largest private owner of real estate in Valletta, has announced its support of world renowned ŻfinMalta contemporary dance company.
Both the VBL Group and ŻfinMalta believe the strategic partnership will deliver the collective vision that both organisations strongly believe in: that Valletta and arts belong hand in hand.
“Valletta’s longstanding relationship with the arts is a foundation stone of the city. Valletta, together with the arts sector, has blossomed over the last 10 years, this traction trajectory must be maintained if Valletta is to compete with its Mediterranean peers,” explained Andrei Imbroll, Chairman of the VBL Group, affirming that “pre- COVID, Valletta was alive with different performances virtually every night of the week. ŻfinMalta, through the dedication of the team, has maintained delivery of its program throughout this challenging time.’’
Focusing on the season ahead, both ŻfinMalta and the VBL Group wish to grow their newfound affiliation to deliver exposure to the local arts scene, encouraging both visitors to our island and residents to embrace Valletta and the arts and culture the city naturally brings with the support of entities such as ŻfinMalta.
“For ŻfinMalta, these partnerships are the key to realising the outstanding work of the company and its artistic collaborators, which otherwise wouldn’t be possible. I am both grateful and excited that VBL has joined ŻfinMalta with a shared vision to enable the company to reach its full potential, and to enrich the cultural life of Valletta, and beyond,” said Paolo Mangiola, Artistic Director at ŻfinMalta.
He takes over from Alejandro Gosttuski, who will now take on the role of an Advisor.
The company, set to launch soon, will seek to provide clients with ‘customer-centric and innovative’ financial services.
