Europeana Facebook page on Malta online
Malta in Europe – Europeana, a newly-launched Facebook page, has opened a doorway to the digital treasures of Europe’s museums, libraries, galleries, archives and audiovisual collections.
People are encouraged to visit and like the new page at www.facebook.com/EuropeanaMalta. Interesting content will be posted daily and visitors will get the chance to participate in a range of activities and events.
By visiting europeana.eu, one can explore, discover, share and be inspired by Europe’s diverse history through books and manuscripts, photos and paintings, television and film, sculpture and crafts, sheet music and recordings.
Across Limits (Malta) is a partner in the Europeana network, which helps connect European citizens through their shared cultural legacy. Malta lies at the heart of such a heritage – from the Ġgantija Temples in Gozo to Malta’s role of a Mediterranean trading centre during the time of the Phoenicians and the Knights of St John.
Malta has influenced and been influenced by its European neighbours for more than 7,000 years.
Speaking about the new Facebook page, the executive director of Europeana, Jill Cousins, said: “We want everyone in Malta to join us on Facebook.
“Through this new page, we’re looking forward to finding out what the people of Malta have to say about culture and inviting the island to join in some great activities over the next few months.”
