Europe's largest university, and itself Italy's European University par excellence, is celebrating the birth of the first signature in European history with an incredible week of meetings and an exceptional panel of experts.
From Monday 22 to Friday 26/03/2021 all the Department of Political Sciences of La Sapienza University of Rome is involved in one of the most important events of the year: "Dialogues on Europe"
Six full days of 2-hour meetings online on Google Meet covering an outstanding variety of topics, from the history of the actual European Union to very actual issues interesting to all citizens of the world nowadays. A real global vision of the nowadays society.
Why in March? The event takes place in the week in which the most important treaties were signed by the European Founding Fathers.
"On 25 March 1957, the representatives of the six Member States of the European Coal and Steel Community (ECSC) meet in the Hall of the Horatii and Curiatii in the Capitol in Rome to sign the Treaties establishing the European Economic Community (EEC) and the European Atomic Energy Community (EAEC or Euratom)"*.
