The Malta Arts Festival is the highlight of Malta’s cultural calendar and runs throughout July. Its philosophy is based on artistic integrity and excellence through the creation of innovative work, collaborations between countries and artists, engagement of the wider society, education, diversity and breadth. The multidisciplinary festival promotes freedom of artistic expression with a programme that embraces music, visual and sound art, theatre, dance, opera, installations, films and education.
Sardinia, placed at the heart of the Mediterranean area, gives residency to an international literary festival which has established itself as one of the most prominent in the region, L’Isola delle Storie. Thousands of visitors attend the free open air event held in Gavoi, a small town right at the centre of the island, in the Barbagia district. The festival gives voice to remarkable international literary figures, acclaimed Italian names, as well as emerging new authors, free thinkers debating what matters and inspiring people to look at the world from a different perspective.
