Casa d'Europa Europeanist Movement "Omnibus Pax et Opus"
Casa d'Europa is a non-profit association founded in Padua by the will of Liliana Louvier, who was president until her death in April 2017.
In his memory the association continued his work: priority task is to inform not only the members but the largest number of people available, starting from the youth.
The association organizes conferences and debates on European issues. All activities are made possible thanks to the commitment of the members who carry out this activity voluntarily and free of charge.
The association collaborates with Europe Direct Venice Veneto of the Municipality of Venice since the opening of the office in the Municipality of Venice in 1999 which provides the materials made available by the European Commission and actively participates in its initiatives.
The House of Europe has been present with an exhibition space at PadovaFiere since 1965: this allows it to be present at all the events that PadovaFiere organizes as the Fiera Campionaria, which celebrates its 100th anniversary in 2019. The stand allows volunteers to dialogue with visitors and economic operators who can thus be updated on European intervention programs, making available the material of the European Commission that the Europe Direct office regularly provides.
Casa d'Europa also pays attention to the world of education. In particular, it seeks to involve the teaching staff who are sensitive to these issues. We give schools both technical support and informational material. These initiatives are also carried out with the collaboration of the Veneto Region, the Province and the Municipality of Padua.
