The Minister for Gozo, Dr Anton Refalo said that he would like thank Banif Bank for its financial assistance in the form of a welcome sponsorship for Circolo Gozitano, that will help the Association organise its events for 2013.
Every year the Circolo organises a number of important events in Gozo’s calendar, including the Gieh Ghawdex Awards and Gozo Day.
Gozo Day marks the anniversary of the capitulation of the French after the uprisings of 1789, while Gieh Ghawdex honours personalites or organisations who have contributed to the social and economic development of Gozo, as well as to the preservation and promotion of Gozo’s distinct identity.
The Circolo Gozitano was established in Victoria, in 1913 and is committed to promoting culture, maintaining Gozitan traditions and promoting Gozitan identity. Towards this end, cultural and educational activities are organised on a regular basis.
