From a “divided” to an “enlarged” Europe: an assessment (1989-2019)

Palazzo Verdi, via Pasolini 23, Ravenna, Italy

From 2nd to 6th September 2019 Palazzo Verdi will host the international seminar 

What is about?

The Seminar’s aim is to reflect and try to draw up a double assessment: the first, thirty years after the fall of the Berlin Wall as a political symbol of the end of the long parenthesis that had artificially divided Europe in two since the Second World War; the second, fifteen years after the great enlargement of the EU, institutional sign of this reunification.
Has this resulted in the structure of common European citizenship? What and how many differences still separate the so-called “old” Europe from the so-called “new” Europe? Can cultural heritage be a vehicle for building such citizenship? Is the widespread feeling of Euroscepticism so closely linked to what factors? Political? Economical? Cultural? Ethical?
These are some of the questions that will be addressed by the interventions during the Seminar, which will have as its main objective to stimulate debate and actively involve all its participants.
