Parish registers undergoing restoration works
The Hon. Giovanna Debono, Minister for Gozo was shown restoration works currently being effected on two parish registers which are among the oldest to be found in Gozo. These registers provide a unique glimpse on the social development of Gozo after the siege of 1551.
The restoration works are part of a project coordinated by the Historical Cultural Committee of St George’s Basilica of Victoria. This project is one of 51 projects benefitting through two schemes launched by the Ministry for Gozo for projects contributing towards the implementation of the Eco-Gozo Action Plan 2010 – 2012. Through these schemes for NGOs, Local Councils and Administrative Committees, Gozo is benefitting from an investment of €2 million.
