ADVERTISING INFORMATION Malta - Culture T he Maltese Islands are a group of small, barren rocks, jutting out of the middle of the dark blue Mediterranean Sea. In these conditions, they would have been relegated to the footnotes of history. Yet, ever since the archipelago was first colonised thousands of years ago, they have never been far from the centre of events and have often played a crucial role in the making of history. Their strategic situation in the centre of the Mediterranean Sea makes up for all the lack of resources that nature endowed the rest of the globe. Malta, the largest island, and her sister islands of Gozo, Comino, Filfla and other very small islands, are strategically placed in the narrow channel joining the eastern and the western basins of the Mediterranean, or if you like, a bridge between Southern Europe and North Africa, or between Western Europe and the Middle East. This had landed the Maltese Islands right in the middle of the most important historic events: the wars between Rome and Carthage, the rise of Islam, the Crusades, the wars between Christians and Moslems, the rise and fall of Napoleon, the rise and fall of the British Empire, the fight for democracy against Fascism and Nazism, the Cold War, the rise of a United Europe and the challenges of the Third Millennium. The Maltese Windmill is in structure and layout similar to that of the Balearic Islands. This association is not surprising, as it was the Majorcan Grandmaster Cottoner who encouraged their construction. The windmill consists of a central tower around which a number of rooms form the rectangular base of the windmill itself. These rooms served as the storage area and the living quarters of the family operating the windmill. The grinding apparatus lies in the upper part of the circular tower.

Identification. Location and Geography. Malta is located in the center of the Mediterranean Sea. Sicily is 58 miles (93.3 kilometers) to the north, and Tunisia is 194 miles (312.5 kilometers) to the west. The territory of the three inhabited islands is 94.9 square miles (320 square kilometers). Gozo has more greenery, and farming there is done on a larger scale. The environment has thin soil and scarce groundwater. Terracing is used to contain erosion in agricultural areas, and herding is confined mostly to Gozo. There is little wildlife besides insects and migratory birds. Public buses reach large towns on Malta and Gozo, and regular ferry service connects the islands. Beaches, coves, grottoes, and fishing villages lie close to roadways, but in some places, the islands fall abruptly into the sea over rocks and cliffs or look out to it across elaborate medieval fortifications. A rainy season occurs in October through February, but the climate is mild year-round. The Grand Harbor of Malta is dominated by Valletta, the national capital, whose construction was begun by the Knights of Saint John in 1566, a year after the defeat of the Great Siege by Ottoman Turkey. The capital of Gozo is Victoria.

Culture in Malta
Malta’s strategic setting at the crossroads of the Mediterranean shipping lanes has always played a crucial role in the island’s history. Over the centuries the great Mediterranean powers have fought to dominate the islands, each new arrival leaving its legacy. What you see today is a complex amalgam of ethnic influences. The Arabs introduced citrus trees and the flat-topped houses, and they laid the foundations for the Maltese language. The Aragonese, from central Spain, left their mark in the medieval architecture of Malta’s historic town centers and the enclosed wooden balconies which typify the splendid town houses. Architecture Under the 268-year rule of the Knights of St John, Malta blossomed into a major cultural center. The buildings they put up touched on almost every sphere of human activity, from water distribution to heavy fortifications. By the time the British arrived at the start of the forefront of European culture in terms of its architecture. In turn the British developed the island, for both military and commercial purposes. The words which come most readily to mind in characterizing Maltese architecture are religion, defence and limestone. Neolithic people left their marks in the mighty temples to their gods, while the long, continuous Christian tradition has given rise to huge and ever-more splendid edifices to the glory of God.

  • About Malta
    Maltese culture and religion
    Religion in Malta
    The predominant religion in Malta is Catholicism, which is followed by over 90% of the population and therefore has a reasonable amount of authority compared to other European states. Mass attendance is also relatively high in this regard, with 52.6% of the population attending Sunday mass, according to 2005 data. Seemingly following a European trend, however, the younger generations seem to be becoming less interested in practising religion. festa or feast. This religious celebration forms an important part of culture in Malta and around 80 such events are held during spring and summer months in Malta and Gozo.
    Culture of opposites
    Malta is seen by many as being a nation of opposites and opposition. Whereas the Maltese people are generally friendly and welcoming, Mediterranean temperament comes forward in opposition of sides at many levels, but mainly in sports, politics and local band clubs. Opposition and choosing sides gives a sense of belonging and identity and this is something that is evident in Maltese culture, in which opposition sometimes flows into conflict. Followers of either side of the contrasting entities often lose touch with reality and conflict has at times escalated and become physical. This is not something that occurs regularly but temperament (and not aggression) is part and parcel of life in Malta, where something as subtle as whispering is a rare occurrence and where oral communication is often much louder than in Northern Europe.

Culture Of Malta
The culture of Malta comprises of multifarious cultures which have evolved over centuries in the Maltese Islands, including the merger of the neighboring Mediterranean cultures, and also of the nations that ruled Malta for decades before its independence in 1964.
The first populace of the Maltese Islands is believed to have been farmers, from nearby Sicily sometime before 5000 BCE. They grew cereals and raised domestic livestock and worshipped large statuettes of a female deity. Pottery made in the earliest times by Maltese civilization - the Ghar Dalam phase, is similar to that found in Agrigento, Sicily. These people were either succeeded by, or gave rise to a mysterious culture of megalithic temple builders, whose surviving monuments on Malta and Gozo are now believed to be the oldest standing stone structures in the world. The temples date from 4000 - 2500 BCE, and typically consist of a complex trefoil (cloverleaf) design.
Though not much known about the Malta and Gozo rituals however, some evidence exists that their rituals included animal sacrifice. This culture disappeared from the Maltese Islands around 2500 BCE. The disappearance is still a mystery; however, historians and archeologists consider that the temple builders fell victim to famine and disease. War cannot be the reason behind it, since archeological digs on Malta have yielded little or no evidence of weapons.

CULTURE Valletta is the centre of many of Malta's cultural institutions: the National Museum of Archaeology, the National Museum of Fine Arts, the War Museum, the Manoel Theatre (one of Europe's oldest theatres still in operation), and the Foundation for International Studies. The National Library of Malta dates from the late 18th century and houses a large collection as well as the archives of the Knights Hospitalers. The Folk Museum and the Museum of Political History are located at Vittoriosa. Until the early 1990s, Maltese radio and television stations had been operated exclusively by the Malta Broadcasting Authority, but a change in legislation has opened the way for privately operated broadcasting stations. There are two daily newspapers in Maltese and one in English.
