Abstract: A Magna Maxima. Rabat – Città Victoria is the name of a recent publication by outgoing Victoria mayor Dr Samuel Azzopardi featuring exquisite photographs by renowned Gozitan photographer Daniel Cilia and with contributions by four Gozitan writers and academics. Gozo’s town has in the past decade inspired various authors to write books and historical articles inspired by its history, geography, archaeology and similar themes. Now, at the end of his ten-year term in office as Victoria’s seventh mayor, lawyer Samuel Azzopardi is bequeathing us a magnificent publication, another book in the long list of coffee-table books that feature the island of the three hills. Dr Azzopardi wrote a short introduction to the book which he considers as a ‘symbol of deep gratitude towards his fellow citizens, staff and people’ of Victoria. Rev. Dr Joseph Bezzina wrote the section about the history of the ancient town which is crowned by the medieval citadel known by one and all as the Gran Castello or Ċittadella.
