The twinning of San Lawrenz, Gozo and Colle Umberto, Italy, is an agreement that is celebrated by the residents of both localities. The San Lawrenz Local Council saidh that the main aim was always towards a twinning of the people and that the commitment at the start of the twinning arrangements ten years ago has lead to the success it is today.
The benefits of this twinning for both the communities were various, from exchanges between youths and associations, exchanges between persons with special needs from Gozo and Treviso and also exchanges between persons from commercial organisations.
To commemorate the 5th anniversary of the twinning an Italian delegation will be visiting the area from the 21st to the 24th of October. As part of the visit the delegation will meet H.E. The President of Malta. A dinner and variety show will be held on Friday in the village.
Then on Sunday the Italian Delegation will be special guests for the 10.30am Mass at the San Lawrenz church, to which all the village residents are invited to attend.
