Gozo Place-names Book Launch at Il-Ħaġar

23 Jan 2021 at 10:30 am

On Saturday 23 January at 10.30am, Il-Ħaġar museum will be hosting the launch of a volume presenting the results of Simon Salafia’s long-time efforts to collect placenames in Gozo. A graduate in electrical engineering, he has widened his interests to languages and historical research.

These well-nigh six hundred pages offer over nine thousand toponyms – also classified according to locality – through the perusal of an impressive range of sources. Details of the locations and descriptions are included. The event is being introduced by Dr Paul G Pisani.  

Entrance is free but current restrictions require registration on events@heartofgozo.org.mt.
