The exhibition is dedicated to the 8 women and the 13 men who inspired the creation of the European Union in which we live today.
Without their efforts and motivations we could not live in a context of peace and stability which we are taking for granted. Fighters of resistance or lawyers or commissioners, the pioneers of the EU were a heterogenous group of people moved by the same ideals: peace and prosperity in Europe.
