Fenech Adami fam­ily launches web­site ded­i­cated to Pres­i­dent Emer­i­tus Ed­die Fenech Adami

Malta Independent - - NEWS -

Archives from Pres­i­dent Emer­i­tus Ed­die Fenech Adami which have been com­piled by the Fenech Adami fam­ily will now be able to viewed on an on­line in­ter­ac­tive plat­form en­ti­tled www.ed­diefenechadami.org.

The project cov­ers the pe­riod be­tween 1981 and 1987, a dark pe­riod for Mal­tese pol­i­tics dom­i­nated by con­flict and se­vere di­vi­sion be­tween the two ma­jor political par­ties, and con­sists of a mix of pho­to­graphs, videos, ar­ti­cles, and speeches ac­quired from the Fenech Adami fam­ily home.

The project be­gan af­ter the Fenech Adami fam­ily no­ticed that there was lit­tle doc­u­men­ta­tion on the in­ter­net of their prom­i­nent fa­ther, in spite of the large amount of archives they held in their fam­ily home.

The web­site is ac­ces­si­ble from any elec­tronic de­vice and is de­signed to cre­ate an in­ter­ac­tive ex­pe­ri­ence for the user. The link be­tween the user and the Pres­i­dent Emer­i­tus is symp­to­matic of Dr Fenech Adami’s strong re­la­tion­ship with the gen­eral pub­lic; so much so that users will be able to leave a note for the Pres­i­dent Emer­i­tus.

For­mer Prime Min­is­ter Lawrence Gonzi, Leader of the Op­po­si­tion Simon Busut­til, PN Pres­i­dent Ann Fenech and Deputy PN Leader Beppe Fenech Adami at­tended the launch.
