Louis Sapienza was one of Malta's leading book sellers and owner of Sapienza's Bookshop in Republic Street, Valletta which celebrates its 100 years anniversary in 2005.

He was born in Sliema on the 22 November 1935. As a young adult, he bought the bookshop in central Valletta from his father following a failed attempt to sell the shop to Mabel Strickland. He ran Sapienza's until 1985 when a company was formed that is now run by his sons James, Mark and Brian.

Louis Sapienza was affectionately known as a humane, religious and humble entrepreneur who always considered his clients as friends. Throughout his life, he refrained from involvement in political or civil associations with the exception of GRUFAN, a discussion group set up by Fr. Hilary Tagliaferro in which he participated in recent years.

He died on 26 May 2005 at the age of 69.
