Excerpt from Twinning document
The concept of ‘twinning’ between Malta and Sicily has a long history. Licata hosted many Maltese fleeing from the Ottoman invaders in 1565. Almost a century later, there was a new migration of Maltese people to Licata, who settled in the San Paolo district. This Became the first town hamlet built out outside the walls of the city of Licata in the the north-eastern slopes of Mount Saint Angelo. This area was dedicated to Saint Paul, protector and patron of Malta.
There are countless business relations between Sicily and Malta, between Licata and Malta. There various cultural and commercial contacts set up by the municipality of Licata and the municipality of Valletta, Involving traders, farmers, and professionals of both localities. This gives us a very firm basis for setting up the twinning between Licata Lions Club and Lions Club Sliema, Malta.
At our last meeting a ‘Lion’ guest from Paris joined us.
