UNESCO ICH


The Fountain of the Tritons, we restored, is a UNESCO ICH Symbol (Intangible Cultural Heritage)

On March 7, 2017, the Maltese Parliament ratified the 2003 UNESCO Convention for the Safeguarding of the Intangible Cultural Heritage, or ICH. Malta has recognised the importance of establishing consultative mechanisms to coordinate activities aimed at implementing the Convention and to ensure that communities, groups and individuals who wish to safeguard their ICH, can be consulted and assisted where needed by government agencies and other stakeholders such as NGOs and research institutes. The Minister responsible for Culture in Malta has thus nominated a National Intangible Cultural Heritage Board to assist in implementing the Convention.
