Ħadd ma jista’ jiċħad li l-festi Maltin huma element importanti tal-identità Maltija. Il-barranin li jżuruna jogħxew wara dawn iċ-ċelebrazzjonijiet imlewna u spettakolari, li qajla jaraw bħalhom f’imkejjen oħra madwar id-dinja. Dan il-ktieb jiċċelebra l-ġmiel tal-festi Maltin, billi joffri lill-qarrej rappreżentazzjoni fotografika ta’ dak kollu li jagħmel il-festa Maltija. Din id-damma ta’ ritratti hi frott il-ħidma ta’ fotografu ħabrieki u dilettant kbir tal-festi. Dawn iż-żewġ karatteristiċi ta’ Mark Micallef Perconte jassiguraw għażla unika ta’ ritratti li jiflu kull dettall minn dawn il-festi tagħna, li żgur se jkunu apprezzati minn kull min għandu għal qalbu l-patrimonju ta’ pajjiżna.

L-għan ewlieni tas-sensiela hu li tgħin lill-qarrej japprezza aktar il-ħidma ta’ tant u tant voluntiera li jissagrifikaw sigħat twal mill-ħin liberu tagħhom biex, mhux biss jiggarantixxu l-livell ta’ eċċellenza li qed jintlaħaq fil-festi tagħna, iżda fuq kollox biex b’ħidmiethom juru li ‘l Alla l-imbierek jixraqlu l-aqwa u l-aħjar. 

About this book

Maltese festas have definitely evolved into an important component of Malta’s identity. Regardless of their creed, tourists visiting Malta are always struck by these multifaceted rituals, as hardly anywhere elese in the world would they have encountered such manifestations. This book celebrates the splendour of Maltese festas, by presenting the reader with a photographic documentation that covers all apsects of the Maltese festa as popularly celevrated across the Maltese islands. This impressive collection of snapshots is the work of an accomplished photographer and festa enthusiast. These two characteristics have ensured a professional choice of focus in catching the best elements for portrayal. Mark Mifallef Perconte’s photographic eye, with its penchant for sharp detail, is indeed truly appreciative of the fascinating details behind the Maltese festa.

The aim of this series is to instill in the reader a keener appreciation of the work of the legion of volunteers who sacrifice long hours of their limited free time, not only to guarantee an excellence of festa celebration unrivalled the world over, but also to express their conviction that God Almighty deserves the best that man’s genius can ever produce in His honour.
