“Ejja Imorru” Let’s Go! It’s time for horse racing Gozo style up the streets of Victoria on Gozo (Malta) during the summer feasts of San Gorg and Santa Marija. Enjoy a front row seat point-of-view (POV) from the bed of the starting gate pickup truck. Certainly lends a different perspective to the race as the drivers of the two-wheeled sulky carts jockey for starting position similar in style to Roman chariot racing. Thanks to Giovan for letting me ride along and the gate keepers Steven and Matthew.

Victoria es la ciudad más importante de la isla de Gozo en Malta. Los orígenes de este enclave fortificado se remontan a los tiempos en que Gozo estuvo bajo las ocupaciones romanas y árabes. En 1551 los turcos lograron penetrar en la fortaleza, por lo que los caballeros de la Orden de Malta, construyeron una serie de bastiones, conservados hasta hoy en día.
A pesar de que Victoria fue destruida primero por el asedio del corsario turco Dragut en 1551 y posteriormente por el terremoto de 1693, todo la ciudad ha sido restaurada, y el centro ha quedado prácticamente como era Gozo en la Edad Media (fotos 1 a 6).
La fortaleza llamada Citadel, queda separada de la ciudad por sus murallas (fotos 7 y 8), y aun se pueden apreciar los cañones que la defendían (foto 9). Pasear por Citadel a pesar de los muchos turistas que hay es muy tranquilo y relajante (foto 10).
En seguida que se entra en Citadel, se llega a la catedral de la Asunción de nuestra Señora, con unas proporciones externas perfectas, como corresponde a un edificio diseñado por Lorenzo Gafa, aunque lo más sorprendente y que se aprecia claramente en la (foto 11), es que la cúpula que se planeó no llegó a construirse, y su ausencia se compensó con una falsa bóveda pintada sobre el techo (foto 12), creando un curioso efecto óptico que constituye un rasgo distintivo de esta catedral…

The Aurora Opera Theatre is centrally situated in Republic Street, Victoria,Gozo Malta. It prides itself on having the largest indoor seating capacity of 1,600 and stage, a spacious orchestra pit and flawless acoustics. Elegantly adorned by the renowned Maltese artist Emvin Cremona, the Aurora theatre is truly an artistic gem, priding a set of 60 original hand-painted works by the world-famous artist, which complement his intricate ceiling design, evoking the idiosyncratic Gozitan lace in a typical 1970’s artistic language. With four levels of boxed tiers all round the auditorium and an upper viewing gallery, it is the only recent theatre on the islands, with specific architectural requirements to host operas.
Inaugurated in 1976, and opening its curtain to the first opera ever to be produced in Gozo in 1977, the Aurora theatre has proved itself throughout the decades as the leading production house in as far as operas and other major theatre events are concerned, on the Maltese islands. Run by volunteers, it is a true hub of activity where all those who work, and all that is done are solely and truly motivated by one simple and authentic cause – the love for the art and love for the place, making the whole venture one remarkable love story.
