The much loved author and teacher, Professor Oliver Friggieri passed away today, aged 73.
Professor Friggieri is considered one of the giants of Maltese literature having written countless amounts of books, poems and novels in Maltese.
He also published a number of studies about Malta’s National Poet, Dun Karm Psaila.
Many of Professor Friggieri’s works have also been translated to English, Italian, Macedonian, Slovenian, Arabic and Russian.
His legacy will definitely live on through his books and through the many students who were lucky enough to have had Prof Friggieri as their teacher.
Our heartfelt condolences to his family and relatives at such a difficult time.
