About Strada Stretta

The Valletta Cultural Agency’s programme for Strada Stretta takes inspiration from this iconic location and its notorious history, as well as from the many families and creatives born and raised here, to provide a stage and an audience for our artists – both established and up-and-coming – against the backdrop of this narrow street brimming with history.
The plan to revive Strada Stretta to its former glory began in the run up to 2018, when Malta’s Capital City, Valletta, was crowned European Capital of Culture. Ever since, the Valletta 2018 Foundation, and subsequently the Valletta Cultural Agency, have been tasked with the creation of an annual programme of events to increasingly valorize and bring life to Strada Stretta, Valletta’s foremost entertainment hub.
