Born In Birkirkara
A Dictionary of Famous Maltese Personalities from Birkirkara
This biography collection is a compilation of personalities born in Birkirkara, Malta
A biography seeks, in a narrative style, to record some of the actions of individual personalities. And the biographer is concerned with the truth about individuals that actually lived. Biographical subjects are always interesting because they deal with human nature and they often try to satisfy some of the readers’ curiosity about other people’s inestimable merits and qualities.
The list of famous men and women born in Birkirkara includes actors, artists, civil servants, doctors, educators, entrepeneurs, humanitarians, musicians, naturalists, patriots, poets, politicians, presidents, religious, scholars, sculptors, singers, sports people, writers, and many more.
Everybody has a part to play, according to their potentialities. The book is, therefore, the guardian of individual knowledge that is deemed worthy of reinstating. Subjects, appearing with their subjectivity as much as possible, are human procedures, incarnate beings that need to be exalted as items present in our memory. And each subject is understood as a contributing factor of our culture’s presence. Humanism is, thus, understood both as a historical recollection and as the construction of the subjective citizen.
