However, towards the end of the 19th century the economy began declining, and by the s Malta's economy was in serious crisis.

One factor was the longer range of newer merchant ships that required less frequent refuelling stops.

Currently, Malta's major resources are limestone , a favourable geographic location and a productive labour force. Malta produces only about 20 per cent of its food needs, has limited freshwater supplies because of the drought in the summer and has no domestic energy sources, aside from the potential for solar energy from its plentiful sunlight.

The economy is dependent on foreign trade serving as a freight trans-shipment point , manufacturing especially electronics and textiles and tourism.

Previously, Sicilian was the official and cultural language of Malta from the 12th century, and Tuscan dialect of Italian from the 16th century.

Alongside Maltese, English is also an official language of the country and hence the laws of the land are enacted both in Maltese and English.

However, article 74 of the Constitution states that " Maltese is a Semitic language descended from the now defunct Sicilian-Arabic Siculo-Arabic dialect from southern Italy that developed during the Emirate of Sicily.

Maltese has a Semitic base with substantial borrowing from Sicilian , Italian, a little French, and more recently and increasingly, English.

The language includes different dialects that can vary greatly from one town to another or from one island to another. Also, 88 per cent of the population speak English, 66 per cent speak Italian, and 17 per cent speak French.

A study collecting public opinion on what language was "preferred" discovered that 86 per cent of the population express a preference for Maltese, 12 per cent for English, and 2 per cent for Italian.

Religion in Malta []. The predominant religion in Malta is Catholicism. The second article of the Constitution of Malta establishes Catholicism as the state religion and it is also reflected in various elements of Maltese culture , although entrenched provisions for the freedom of religion are made.

There are more than churches in Malta, Gozo and Comino, or one church for every 1, residents. The parish church Maltese: This civic pride manifests itself in spectacular fashion during the local village festas , which mark the day of the patron saint of each parish with marching bands, religious processions, special Masses , fireworks especially petards and other festivities.

Paul , on his way from Jerusalem to Rome to face trial, was shipwrecked on the island of "Melite", which many Bible scholars identify with Malta, an episode dated around AD Paul spent three months on the island on his way to Rome, curing the sick including the father of Publius, the "chief man of the island".

Various traditions are associated with this account. The shipwreck is said to have occurred in the place today known as St Paul's Bay.

The Maltese saint, Saint Publius is said to have been made Malta's first bishop and a grotto in Rabat , now known as "St Paul's Grotto" and in the vicinity of which evidence of Christian burials and rituals from the 3rd century AD has been found , is among the earliest known places of Christian worship on the island.

Further evidence of Christian practices and beliefs during the period of Roman persecution appears in catacombs that lie beneath various sites around Malta, including St Paul's Catacombs and St Agatha's Catacombs in Rabat, just outside the walls of Mdina.

The latter, in particular, were beautifully frescoed between and , although marauding Turks defaced many of them in the s.

Luke painted a picture of the Madonna. It has been a place of pilgrimage since medieval times. The last recorded Bishop of Malta before the invasion of the islands was a Greek named Manas, who was subsequently incarcerated at Palermo.

Maltese historian Giovanni Francesco Abela states that following their conversion to Christianity at the hand of St. Paul , the Maltese retained their Christian religion, despite the Fatimid invasion.

Since all bishops of Malta have been Maltese. As a result of the Norman and Spanish periods, and the rule of the Knights, Malta became the devout Catholic nation that it is today.

It is worth noting that the Office of the Inquisitor of Malta had a very long tenure on the island following its establishment in During the period of the Republic of Venice , several Maltese families emigrated to Corfu.

Their descendants account for about two-thirds of the community of some 4, Catholics that now live on that island. Publius Malta's first acknowledged saint canonised in the year Most congregants of the local Protestant churches are not Maltese; their congregations draw on the many British retirees living in the country and vacationers from many other nations.

In , Malta and Sicily came under Aragonese rule and the Alhambra Decree of forced all Jews to leave the country, permitting them to take with them only a few of their belongings.

Most of the foreign community in Malta, predominantly active or retired British nationals and their dependents, is centred on Sliema and surrounding modern suburbs.

Other smaller foreign groups include Italians, Libyans and Serbians, many of whom have assimilated into the Maltese nation over the decades.

Since the late 20th century, Malta has become a transit country for migration routes from Africa towards Europe. As a member of the European Union and of the Schengen agreement , Malta is bound by the Dublin Regulation to process all claims for asylum by those asylum seekers that enter EU territory for the first time in Malta.

The compulsory detention policy has been denounced by several NGOs, and in July , the European Court of Human Rights found that Malta's detention of migrants was arbitrary, lacking in adequate procedures to challenge detention, and in breach of its obligations under the European Convention on Human Rights.

In the 19th century, most emigration from Malta was to North Africa and the Middle East, although rates of return migration to Malta were high. By , for example, British consular estimates suggest that there were 15, Maltese in Tunisia , and in it was claimed that 15, people of Maltese origin were living in Algeria.

Malta experienced significant emigration as a result of the collapse of a construction boom in and after the Second World War, when the birth rate increased significantly, but in the 20th century most emigrants went to destinations in the New World , particularly to Australia, Canada and the United States.

Between and , 30 per cent of the population emigrated. Emigration dropped dramatically after the mids and has since ceased to be a social phenomenon of significance.

However, since Malta joined the EU in expatriate communities emerged in a number of European countries particularly in Belgium and Luxembourg.

The University of Malta U. The adult literacy rate is Maltese and English are both used to teach pupils at primary and secondary school level, and both languages are also compulsory subjects.

Public schools tend to use both Maltese and English in a balanced manner. Private schools prefer to use English for teaching, as is also the case with most departments of the University of Malta ; this has a limiting effect on the capacity and development of the Maltese language.

The Medical Association of Malta represents practitioners of the medical profession. The Foundation Program followed in the UK has been introduced in Malta to stem the 'brain drain' of newly graduated physicians to the British Isles.

The culture of Malta reflects the various cultures, from the Phoenicians to the British, that have come into contact with the Maltese Islands throughout the centuries, including neighbouring Mediterranean cultures, and the cultures of the nations that ruled Malta for long periods of time prior to its independence in This consists of background folk guitar music, while a few people, generally men, take it in turns to argue a point in a sing-song voice.

The aim of the lyrics, which are improvised, is to create a friendly yet challenging atmosphere, and it takes a number of years of practice to be able to combine the required artistic qualities with the ability to debate effectively.

Documented Maltese literature is over years old. However, a recently unearthed love ballad testifies to literary activity in the local tongue from the Medieval period.

Subsequent writers like Ruzar Briffa and Karmenu Vassallo tried to estrange themselves from the rigidity of formal themes and versification.

The next generation of writers, including Karl Schembri and Immanuel Mifsud , widened the tracks further, especially in prose and poetry.

Maltese architecture has been influenced by many different Mediterranean cultures and British architecture over its history. The Neolithic temple builders — BC endowed the numerous temples of Malta and Gozo with intricate bas relief designs, including spirals evocative of the tree of life and animal portraits, designs painted in red ochre, ceramics and a vast collection of human form sculptures, particularly the Venus of Malta.

These can be viewed at the temples themselves most notably, the Hypogeum and Tarxien Temples , and at the National Museum of Archaeology in Valletta.

Malta's temples such as Imnajdra are full of history and have a story behind them. The Roman period introduced highly decorative mosaic floors, marble colonnades and classical statuary, remnants of which are beautifully preserved and presented in the Roman Domus, a country villa just outside the walls of Mdina.

The early Christian frescoes that decorate the catacombs beneath Malta reveal a propensity for eastern, Byzantine tastes. These tastes continued to inform the endeavours of medieval Maltese artists, but they were increasingly influenced by the Romanesque and Southern Gothic movements.

Towards the end of the 15th century, Maltese artists, like their counterparts in neighbouring Sicily, came under the influence of the School of Antonello da Messina , which introduced Renaissance ideals and concepts to the decorative arts in Malta.

The artistic heritage of Malta blossomed under the Knights of St. John , who brought Italian and Flemish Mannerist painters to decorate their palaces and the churches of these islands, most notably, Matteo Perez d'Aleccio , whose works appear in the Magisterial Palace and in the Conventual Church of St.

John in Valletta, and Filippo Paladini, who was active in Malta from to For many years, Mannerism continued to inform the tastes and ideals of local Maltese artists.

The arrival in Malta of Caravaggio , who painted at least seven works during his month stay on these islands, further revolutionised local art.

His legacy is evident in the works of local artists Giulio Cassarino — and Stefano Erardi — However, the Baroque movement that followed was destined to have the most enduring impact on Maltese art and architecture.

The glorious vault paintings of the celebrated Calabrese artist, Mattia Preti transformed the severe, Mannerist interior of the Conventual Church St.

John into a Baroque masterpiece. Preti spent the last 40 years of his life in Malta, where he created many of his finest works, now on display in the Museum of Fine Arts in Valletta.

During the 17th and 18th century, Neapolitan and Rococo influences emerged in the works of the Italian painters Luca Giordano — and Francesco Solimena — , and these developments can be seen in the work of their Maltese contemporaries such as Giovanni Nicola Buhagiar — and Francesco Zahra — The Rococo movement was greatly enhanced by the relocation to Malta of Antoine de Favray — , who assumed the position of court painter to Grand Master Pinto in Parliament established the National School of Art in the s.

This group of forward-looking artists came together forming an influential pressure group known as the Modern Art Group. Together they forced the Maltese public to take seriously modern aesthetics and succeeded in playing a leading role in the renewal of Maltese art.

Most of Malta's modern artists have in fact studied in Art institutions in England, or on the continent, leading to the explosive development of a wide spectrum of views and to a diversity of artistic expression that has remained characteristic of contemporary Maltese art.

A number of regional variations, particularly with regards to Gozo, can be noted as well as seasonal variations associated with the seasonal availability of produce and Christian feasts such as Lent , Easter and Christmas.

Food has been important historically in the development of a national identity in particular the traditional fenkata i.

Maltese folktales include various stories about mysterious creatures and supernatural events. This collection of material inspired subsequent researchers and academics to gather traditional tales , fables and legends from all over the Archipelago.

Magri's work also inspired a series of comic books released by Klabb Kotba Maltin in The traditional Maltese obsession with maintaining spiritual or ritual purity [] means that many of these creatures have the role of guarding forbidden or restricted areas and attacking individuals who broke the strict codes of conduct that characterised the island's pre-industrial society.

Traditional Maltese proverbs reveal a cultural importance of childbearing and fertility: This is a belief that Malta shares with many other Mediterranean cultures.

Rural Malta shares in common with Mediterranean society a number of superstitions regarding fertility, menstruation and pregnancy, including the avoidance of cemeteries during the months leading up to childbirth, and avoiding the preparation of certain foods during menses.

Pregnant women are encouraged to satisfy their cravings for specific foods, out of fear that their unborn child will bear a representational birth mark Maltese: Maltese and Sicilian women also share certain traditions that are believed to predict the sex of an unborn child, such as the cycle of the moon on the anticipated date of birth, whether the baby is carried "high" or "low" during pregnancy, and the movement of a wedding ring, dangled on a string above the abdomen sideways denoting a girl, back and forth denoting a boy.

Traditionally, Maltese newborns were baptised as promptly as possible, should the child die in infancy without receiving this vital Sacrament; and partly because according to Maltese and Sicilian folklore an unbaptised child is not yet a Christian, but "still a Turk".

These may include a hard-boiled egg, a Bible, crucifix or rosary beads , a book, and so on. Whichever object the child shows most interest in is said to reveal the child's path and fortunes in adulthood.

Money refers to a rich future while a book expresses intelligence and a possible career as a teacher. Infants who select a pencil or pen will be writers.

Choosing Bibles or rosary beads refers to a clerical or monastic life. If the child chooses a hard-boiled egg, it will have a long life and many children.

More recent additions include calculators refers to accounting , thread fashion and wooden spoons cooking and a great appetite.

Traditional Maltese weddings featured the bridal party walking in procession beneath an ornate canopy, from the home of the bride's family to the parish church, with singers trailing behind serenading the bride and groom.

This custom along with many others has long since disappeared from the islands, in the face of modern practices. However, it is no longer worn in modern Malta.

Today's couples are married in churches or chapels in the village or town of their choice. The nuptials are usually followed by a lavish and joyous wedding reception, often including several hundred guests.

Occasionally, couples will try to incorporate elements of the traditional Maltese wedding in their celebration. Local festivals, similar to those in Southern Italy, are commonplace in Malta and Gozo, celebrating weddings, christenings and, most prominently, saints ' days, honouring the patron saint of the local parish.

On saints' days, the festa reaches its apex with a High Mass featuring a sermon on the life and achievements of the patron saint, after which a statue of the religious patron is taken around the local streets in solemn procession, with the faithful following in respectful prayer.

The atmosphere of religious devotion quickly gives way to several days of celebration and revelry: It is held during the week leading up to Ash Wednesday , and typically includes masked balls, fancy dress and grotesque mask competitions, lavish late-night parties, a colourful, ticker-tape parade of allegorical floats presided over by King Carnival Maltese: Numerous religious traditions, most of them inherited from one generation to the next, are part of the paschal celebrations in the Maltese Islands, honouring the death and resurrection of Jesus.

Mnarja, or l-Imnarja pronounced lim-nar-ya is one of the most important dates on the Maltese cultural calendar. Officially, it is a national festival dedicated to the feast of Saints Peter and St.

Its roots can be traced back to the pagan Roman feast of Luminaria literally, "the illumination" , when torches and bonfires lit up the early summer night of 29 June.

A national feast since the rule of the Knights , Mnarja is a traditional Maltese festival of food, religion and music.

The festivities still commence today with the reading of the "bandu" , an official governmental announcement, which has been read on this day in Malta since the 16th century.

Originally, Mnarja was celebrated outside St. Paul's Grotto, in the north of Malta. However, by the focus of the festivities had shifted to the Cathedral of St.

Paul , in Mdina , and featured torchlight processions, the firing of petards, horseraces, and races for men, boys and slaves. Modern Mnarja festivals take place in and around the woodlands of Buskett , just outside the town of Rabat.

It is said that under the Knights, this was the one day in the year when the Maltese were allowed to hunt and eat wild rabbit , which was otherwise reserved for the hunting pleasures of the Knights.

The close connection between Mnarja and rabbit stew Maltese: In British governor William Reid launched an agricultural show at Buskett which is still being held today.

The farmers' exhibition is still a seminal part of the Mnarja festivities today. Traditionally, grooms would promise to take their brides to Mnarja during the first year of marriage.

For luck, many of the brides would attend in their wedding gown and veil, although this custom has long since disappeared from the islands.

The festival has been arranged annually in Malta since , with major pop artists performing each year. Am at Fosos Square in Floriana.

Over 50, people attended, which marked the biggest attendance so far. In the first New Year's Eve street party was organised in Malta, parallel to what major countries in the world organise.

Although the event was not highly advertised, and was controversial due to the closing of an arterial street on the day, it is deemed to have been successful and will most likely be organised every year.

The festival offers fireworks displays of a number of Maltese as well as foreign fireworks factories. The festival is usually held in the last week of April every year.
