Ever Closer Union exhibition completes Portugal tour

Posted on 19 February 2018

The European Public Space (EPE) has released a summary report, as they mark the end of the Portuguese tour of our travelling exhibition: Ever Closer Union - The legacy of the Treaties of Rome for Today’s Europe (1957-2017).

The exhibition travelled to nine locations in Portugal between 21 March and 27 December 2017 to mark the 60th anniversary of the Treaties of Rome, before finishing its tour at CDE of the Catholic University in Lisbon.

The European Public Space, by designation of the Representation of the European Commission, coordinated the exhibition’s tour.  During the year it was hosted by various public entities, universities and Europe Direct Centers, to ensure that average citizens throughout the country could get in touch with and learn about the history of the European Union, its main achievements and its future.

The exhibition was designed and developed by the Historical Archives of the European Union in Florence, with the support of the European Parliament, the Council of the European Union, the European Commission, the Italian Presidency of the Council of Ministers, the Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation and the National News Agency ANSA.

Additionally outside of Portugal, the exhibition travelled to 131 locations and 109 countries worldwide. It was also translated into 33 languages.
