148 Strada Santa Caterina Casal Curmi today known as 106, St Catherine Street, Qormi but when Italian was the language of the professional people and of the Law Courts, the address used in documents and on postal envelopes was in Italian. Due to a recent renumbering project undertaken by the authorities, the house was assigned a new number, 106. The house was built in the middle of the 19th Century and enjoys a lot of architectural features of the time. It was lived in mostly by a family of Catholic priests. The first one was Dun Ġwann Cilia who had his niece, Maria Gratia Cilia, known by the Maltese name Grezz, living-in as a house matron. Later when the two brothers of Grezz became priests they too came to live in this house. Their names were Dun Ġużepp Cilia, and Dun Salv Cilia. On the demise of Grezz, her niece, Nina daughter of her brother Ġanni, took her place as matron of the house. The nephew of Nina, Dun David Cilia, also became a priest and lived for a time in the house. Nina was a spinster and dedicated her life to serve the family and her community.
