Maltese Ftira – UNESCO Intangible Cultural Heritage List hopeful

Local media sources seem to have been tipped off that the technique involved in the manufacturing of the traditional Ftira is a favourite to be presented by the Maltese goverment to the specialist committee that hopefully then include it in  UNESCO list as an Intangible Cultural Heritage.

Should the Ftira making technique gain a place in this prestogious list, it will perpetually protect the production technique of this traditional provision.

The Maltese Ftira is a staple in the local cuisine and is very popular with Maltese and Foreigners alike.
