CARNIVAL'S ARTISTIC DIRECTOR
Welcome to another edition of the Maltese Carnival, a sensational celebration hosting spectacular floats, magnificent costumes and masks – a true testament to the incredible talent of Carnival aficionados. Through careful planning and coordination, this year we have redesigned the formation for Saint George’s Square, Valletta so that our floats and dances can be experienced to the full. Moreover, works on the Carnival Village are also well underway so that both tourists and locals can appreciate the Carnival’s rich history.
This year we collaborated with Eric Leone, a young local illustrator and concept artist, to give life to our participants’ sketches, a new initiative which we plan to extend to company logos next year. Carnival 2020 will also feature the Tritoni Carnival Celebration with Tenishia, in collaboration with the Valletta Cultural Agency - a live worldwide broadcast of various local DJs as they perform in Triton Square with the carnival parade in the background.
I would like to thank the Carnival Committee, the Festivals Malta team under the direction of Annabelle Stivala, Minister Dr Jose’ Herrera, the Carnival Participants Organisation led by Clint Axisa, the volunteers, relatives, and friends who also ensure that the Carnival is always a resounding success.
Happy Carnival festivities to all!
