The April edition of Il-Ħajja f’Għawdex takes readers underneath the Citadel bastions in Victoria on a visit to the newly restored wartime shelter complex. A quaint photo takes one further back in time, to when the present church of Ta’ Pinu was still a ‘work in progress’. Readers will also be able to enjoy a socio-linguistic snapshot of the many dialects still in use in Gozo and learn about the subtle ways islanders adjust their speech to suit audience and context.
A biography of a saintly monarch and articles on Moses the lawmaker, a new bishop in Perù who hails from Żebbuġ, fauna literature, horse-racing and the evergreen topic of inter-island connectivity all form part of the content, not to mention more of the series of didactic anecdotes taken from everyday life and a detailed interview on a mosaic sacred art studio that has been making a name for itself in Gozo and beyond.
