  1. I have a similar problem. I am renovating an appartment in a world heritage site. It is in the capital city Valletta. Have been spending thousands buying French furniture and modern classics such as Kartell pieces. So I feel that I might have the same problem as Richard, only I am not able to wait for a long time with my investment.
