At dawn the next day

All’alba del giorno dopo

EN | IT | PL | FR | DE – We are at the European elections countdown, at a political flashpoint, with clashing predictions of opposite signs: a part of the public opinion seeking to unravel the tangle of controversy while another part has clear ideas about the choice to be made. As usual, there is part of the information aimed at making you think and there is part of the information which is sided, in order to make people side.

To build the common house

Edificare la casa comune

EN | IT – On April 21, 1954, exactly 60 years ago, Alcide De Gasperi – one of the fathers of the European Community together with Robert Schuman and Konrad Adenauer – made a speech to the European Parliamentary Conference gathered in Paris.

A “new deal” after the crisis

Un "new deal" dopo la crisi

EN | IT – A special plan “for sustainable development and employment, which would boost the European economy and help create new jobs”.
