WHO ARE MR AND MRS SNOP?
Mrs. SNOP is a French lawyer, specializing in banking law. Mr. SNOP is an entrepreneur in the publishing and the social networking industry. They are both lovers of the history, culture and art de vivre of the Maltese archipelago and have been involved in the cultural, social and economic life of Malta since 2001. Both have a strong interest in modern and contemporary art and have experience with historic renovations in Malta (Gozo) and in the French Luberon. The opening of The Snop House during Valetta’s year as a European Capital of Culture combines the couple’s passions with the exciting revival of the Cottonera area.
