The Embassy of Malta in Warsaw had the honour to participate for the fourth consecutive year in an event organised by the EU National Institutes for Culture (EUNIC) in Warsaw entitled ‘Poems in the City 2022’.


The objective of the project is to enable poetry originating from European Union countries to be given wider exposure in public spaces in Warsaw. To this end, EUNIC collaborated with the local authorities in Warsaw to have poems, in their original language, displayed on trams and buses in Warsaw and screens at Metro Świętokrzyska between the 18th and 24th April and between in 09th and the 15th May 2022.


For this edition of Poems in the City 2022, Malta was represented by Prof. Simone Galea, a Maltese poet and an Associate Professor at the Faculty of Education at the University of Malta, with a poem called “Inizjazzjoni”, translated to Polish by Ms Zuzanna Gawron.


The Embassy’s participation in this event was sponsored and supported by the Arts Council Malta. The theme chosen for this edition of ‘Poems in the City 2022’ was ‘Beginning’.
