‘A man of cultural achievements,’ is the title of a new book published to honour – Mr Joseph Attard Tabone – who has this month celebrated his 80th birthday. The book was launched by the Minister for Gozo Dr Anton Refalo.
Mr Attard Tabone, has during his lifetime greatly contributed to Gozo in the field of archaeology, as well as in the protection of Gozo’s heritage – a contribution already recognised and appreciated, when he was granted the Medal for Services to the Republic in 2001 and the Gieh Ghawdex Award by Circolo Gozitano in 2008.
The book contains several writings by well-known authors – all experts in their field, of a historical, cultural and natural aspect, many of them related to our island.
Some of these writings are also about Xaghra, where Mr Attard Tabone was born and raised. The interesting biography of Mr Attard Tabone encompasses all the work he has undertaken to protect the historical and artistic heritage of Gozo.
