Meet the man who created his own Mosta Dome

There’s no stopping Maltese pensioner Charlie Camilleri.

At the age of 95, the retired carpenter now lives in Australia but his passion for Malta is still as strong as ever.

So much so that since his retirement, Charlie has spent hundreds of hours creating stunning wooden models of some of Malta’s most famous landmarks, including the Royal Opera House in Valletta and the Mosta Dome church.

He said: ‘Both these buildings where bombed during the Second World War. Luckily one survived intact.

‘My entire life has been dedicated to my hobby. Being a cabinet maker, I love working with wood.’

Some of Charlie’s beautiful models have gone on display at a special Maltese festivals in Victoria.

Nice work, Charlie!
