Press release from: Malta

The Imqabba Fireworks Club of Santa Marija recently took part in an annual international festival in Caput Lucis, Rome Italy.

The five-day long festival also showcased the works of Japanese, Italian, British, Romanian, Slovenian, Spanish and Chinese fireworks. The Maltese club participated on the night of Thursday 2nd August, to crowds made up of around 300,000 persons.

Malta's show was chosen as the best by a panel of eight jurors, who are all fire works experts. The festival was held in a 80,000 square metre zone in Valmontone, and was sponsored by the region of Lazio and the province of Rome. The Imqabba Fireworks Club of Santa Marija had also placed first in the International Fireworks Competition held in Malta.

Fireworks enthusiasts have a bad press in Malta. It's an evidently risky pursuit and in some cases it can be a noisy irritant. But fireworks are not all negative. They do attract huge crowds. The Caput Lucis competition is said to have attracted half a million people over five days. The displays organised by some fireworks groups in Malta can be appealing for tourists and locals alike and the shows put up by the Saint Mary group of Mqabba have beaten foreign competition abroad. Congratulations are very definitely in order.
