The Place-Names of Gozo by Simon Salafia- Vol. 1 Book Launch at Il-Hagar

On the 23rd of January 2020, il-Hagar Museum hosted another book launch, this time by Maltese researcher Simon Salafia. The “Place Names of Gozo” is the title of a volume which presents the results of Salafia’s long-time efforts to collect place names in Gozo.

A graduate in electrical engineering, Salafia 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 was introduced by Dr Paul G Pisani.
