Palazzo dell'Ordine di Malta is at Via dei Condotti #68. The Sovrano Militare Ordine di Malta (Sovereign Military Order of Malta)/Magistral Palace/Sovrano Ordine di Malta, which is accorded extraterritorial rights by the Italian State, occupies the previous Palazzo Provani and a number of other nearby houses, reconstructed and adjoined after 1631. The facades on Via Condotti and Via Bocca di Leone were remade in the 19th century. Inside is a parade staircase and in some halls are the original wooden ceilings.
The Order of Malta remains true to its inspiring principles, summarised in the motto “Tuitio Fidei et Obsequium Pauperum”, defence of the Faith and assistance to the poor and the suffering, which become reality through the voluntary work carried out by Dames and Knights in humanitarian assistance and medical and social activities. Today the Order carries out these activities in over 120 countries.
The Order has recently returned to Malta, after signing an agreement with the Maltese Government which granted the Order the exclusive use of Fort St. Angelo for a term of 99 years. Located in the town of Birgu, the Fort belonged to the Knights from 1530 until the island was occupied by Napoleon in 1798. Today, after restoration, the Fort hosts historical and cultural activities related to the Order of Malta.
