GO has renewed its support to Fondazzjoni Wirt Artna, the Malta Heritage Trust. As a result, GO will remain the exclusive communications partner of Fondazzjoni Wirt Artna, providing various communications services. These will help the organisation in its operations and enhance the experience of visitors at the many historical sites which it manages.
During a visit to the Malta at War Museum in Vittoriosa, GO’s CEO Yiannos Michaelides, said, “Fondazzjoni Wirt Artna, with its dedicated professional staff and army of volunteers, works tirelessly to preserve some of Malta’s most important historic sites and buildings. To be sustainable, the Foundation needs to attract visitors to its sites and GO is more than happy to provide technology and communications services which make the visitor experience that much better.”
Fondazzjoni Wirt Artna administers properties which cover 7,000 years of Maltese history dating from pre-history to the 20th century. In addition to the Malta at War Museum, these include a 17th century coastal tower at Xghajra, the Lascaris War Rooms in Valletta, Notre Dame Gate in Vittoriosa, St Thomas Tower in Marsascala, Madliena Tower in Pembroke, Fort Rinella in Kalkara and the Saluting Battery in Valletta, among others.
Mario Farrugia, Executive Chairman at Fondazzjoni Wirt Artna said, “GO have been partners with Fondazzjoni Wirt Artna for five years. In that time they have made a real contribution to helping us provide our visitors with the best experience possible. Creating an interactive experience is not always easy at the sites we manage but thanks to GO’s expertise we have made great strides forward. This new agreement will help us take the visitor experience we offer to a new level, something which is really crucial to ensuring the viability of our organisation and, ultimately, the preservation of some of Malta’s most important historic locations.”
