The Maltese Islands are a group of small rocks, jutting out from the centre of the Mediterranean Sea. In these conditions, they would have been relegated to the footnotes of history. Yet, ever since the archipelago was first colonised thousands of years ago, these islands have often played a crucial role in the making of history. Their strategic location at the heart of the Mediterranean Sea makes up for all the lack of natural resources here. Malta, the largest island, and her sister islands of Gozo, Comino, Filfla are strategically placed in the narrow channel joining the eastern and the western basins of the Mediterranean… a bridge between Southern Europe and North Africa and between Western Europe and the Middle East. This has landed the Maltese Islands right in the middle of the most important historic events: the wars between Rome and Carthage, the rise of Islam, the Crusades, the wars between Christians and Muslims, the rise and fall of Napoleon, the rise and fall of the British Empire, the fight for democracy against Fascism and Nazism, the Cold War, the rise of a United Europe and the challenges of the Third Millennium.
