“The European Union: A Challenge and A Goal” with P. Lindseth, G. Migone, N. Urbanati, and J. Weiler


Date: Sep 19, 2016

While the European states were sinking in totalitarian regimes and preparing for the war, a few anti-Fascists confined by the Fascist regime in a remote Mediterranean island wrote a manifesto envisaging the future European Union. The Manifesto of Ventotene, a document of pragmatic utopia, would become the matrix of a project of cooperation among former enemies, the starting point of a stabilized and democratic Europe. Brexit is a radical turning point in relation to that project and a critical moment for the European Union. The Italian Cultural Institute presents a seminar to discuss and reflect on Europe future after Brexit.
