Fosos is the Maltese word for Granaries, this Malta’s largest square in the city of Floriana was a store for grain built by the Knighs Of St John probably around 300 years ago when they ruled Malta, in fact the Fosos which existed before Floriana began to form as a city use to stretch across most of the town and two smaller Fosos now also turned piazzas are a proof of this. In reality the Fosos are the small circular areas positioned in a perfecl horizontal and vertical manner covering the stretch of the square and which use to serve as lids for the apertures in order to fill or take out the grain(weath). The Fosos were heavily bombarded by the Germans in World War 2 in order to starve the Maltese & English of hunger, also severly damaging the beautiful Church dedicated to St Publius First Maltese Bishop & Maltese Saint. May I point out that in fact Fosos is how people affectionately call this square but the real name for the Square is Pjazza San Publju (St.Publius Square), and this is the venue for the most important mass activities held in Malta throughout history, not least to mention Pope John Paul the 2nd visits 2 times & 2 months ago Pope Benedict the 16th visit, apart from hosting numerous concerts by International Stars, 3 previous Isle s of MTV, also this year we expect Mr Elton John, Rod Stewart, Claudio Baglioni & Dione Warwick.
