Kullana Kulturali, a series of 72 hard-bound volumes dealing with cultural aspects of Maltese life, has just published the last set of three books (nos: 64, 65 and 66 in the series): L-Istorja Kostituzzjonali u 1-Isfond Storiku (1800-1942) and L-Istorja Kostituzzjonali u 1-Isfond Storiku (1942-2004) – the two volumes by Joseph M. Pirotta and Il-Kostum Malti u d-Drapp fl-Istorja ta’ Malta by Vincent Zammit.

This series builds up into an encyclopaedia of Maltese culture presented by Pubblikazzjonijiet Indipendenza to the nation, a monumental task that involves the best 20th century authors, scholars, and professionals – all experts in their field, all of them contributing towards a comprehensive definition of the national identity. PIN’s is actively engaged in defining traditions and achievements, and describing the social and historical environment of the Maltese nation. It is a useful task in the light of the European Union that will eventually grow into a store of local culture, an encyclopaedia that future generations will definitely appreciate.

The 72 volumes of the Kullana Kulturali were published over a period of six years, with three volumes every three months.
