A focus on Gozo Collection home page Statistics


This is the third volume published by the University of Malta Gozo Centre. The first two books dealt respectively with Tourism and with Culture in Gozo. The present volume contains a selection of papers originally presented in the form of lectures during the course entitled 'A Focus on Gozo', which the Gozo Centre organised in 1994-95. Such is Gozo's small size that one can mistakenly assume that the personality and character of the island are of little significance, and need not be studied and understood. The contents of this volume show otherwise. The title 'A Focus on Gozo', was chosen precisely because the editors felt that it is very worthwhile zooming in on a number of areas related to the island's physical and cultural development, to understand the multifaceted impacts that have shaped the island's character as we know it today. Gozo possesses a character which is distinctly perceptible and intrinsically its own. It is a character rooted in its physical features, its geographical location and abides in the island's geology, insularity, natural territorial features and vegetation.
