Gozitans on stamps

Months ago I wrote to recommend that Maltapost include a Gozitan among those remembered on our stamps.

So it is only fair that I should thank them for the Personalities set just issued: and the designs are really stylish!

Three of the five shown actually have a Gozitan connection, which the official bulletin does not cover clearly.

Adrian Dingli was of Gozitan parentage and was also actively involved in Gozitan projects, in-cluding the separate diocese. Saverio Cassar (who was not simply Archpriest of the Matrice) of course has a prominent place in Gozitan history.

Emmanuele Vitale also served in Gozo and is said to have been buried here.

What I now ask Maltapost is to limit the total face value!
