60° Anniversario di Trattati di Roma – Evento Commemorativo a Shanghai

On the 21st March, a commemorative event for the 60th Anniversary of the Treaties of Rome, which represent the pillars of European Union foundation, will take place at Jiao Tong University of Shanghai. This event will be held alongside the major European Conference of March 18th, in Rome, and other following-up events worldwide.

The event consists of a presentation of the “Ever closer Union” travelling exhibition, provided by the European University Institute of Florence as an historical documentary expo of the European integration process.

In this occasion, Professor of Law Mr.Ivan Cardillo, and by the Chinese counterparts Mr… will give an introductory speech in the presence of the Consulates General of the Six Founding Members of the European Union (Germany, France, Holland, Belgium and Luxemburg) and the European Chamber of Commerce in China.

As 2017 marks the 60th anniversary of the Treaties of Rome, the event aims to offer an opportunity of dialogue among the Chinese and European communities to reflect upon this agreement in a historical perspective and discuss the future of the European Union.

The Treaties of Rome, signed in Rome on the 25th March 195, gave birth to the European Economic Community (EEC) and to European Atomic Energy Community (Euratom) known as. The signatories of the historic agreement were Christian Pineau on
behalf of France, Joseph Luns from the Netherlands, Paul Henri Spaak from Belgium, Joseph Bech from Luxemburg, Antonio Segni from Italy and Konrad Adenauer from the Federal Republic of Germany. National Parliaments ratified the Treaties over the following months and came into force on the 1st January 1958. The EEC, colloquially known as “Common Market”, affirmed in its preamble that signatory States were “determined to lay the foundations of an ever closer union among the peoples of Europe”. In this way, the member States specifically affirmed the political objective of a progressive political integration.

To sum up, this fundamental constituent act put in motion a process in which progressive economic integration was paving the way to the long-term objective, the political union. Even if the creation of a European unified regulatory system and the construction of a strong European identity are not easy to achieve, the economic successes accomplished by the Union so far mark the European
assimilation as an irreversible process.
