A short essay on the European Union edited by Stefano Baldi has been recently published. It is titled “The European Union is 60 years old. Is it too young or too old?” (Embassy of Italy – Sofia, 2017).
The book, which is available in digital and in paper format, has been realized on the basis of a Round Table organized by the Embassy of Italy in Sofia to celebrate the 60th anniversary of the signature of the Treaties of Rome.
Here is a short description of the book:
“On the occasion of the 60th anniversary of the signing of the Treaties of Rome (March 24, 1957) the Italian Embassy in Sofia in collaboration with the Italian Cultural Institute of Sofia organised a Round Table. “The Treaties of Rome: the EU is 60 years old, is it too young or too old?” was the provocative title chosen for the Round Table that took place on March 10, 2017 at the University of Sofia St. Kliment Ohridski. The four panelists, invited for the event, Raimondo Cagiano de Azevedo, Solomon Passy, Ingrid Shikova, and Ognian Zlatev, offered different approaches regarding the evolution of the European integration process, which led to a lively and constructive debate with the audience. Their interesting interventions have been collected in this publication”
