How many times have you entered the “Altiero Spinelli building” in the European Parliament and wondered who Altiero Spinelli really was? How many times have you heard people talking about him as one of “Europe’s founding fathers” without knowing exactly why and what made him so distinct from other so-called founding fathers?
On the 30th anniversary of his death, federalist organisations in Brussels - Stand Up for the Unites States of Europe, Young European Federalists (JEF), UEF Belgium, UEF Group Europe and JEF Brussels - organise a debate discuss the life Altiero Spinelli, his lifelong battle for the United States of Europe, and how his belief in European unity could contribute to today’s debate on the European project.
The evening will be opened by Paolo Vacca, Secretary-General of the Union of European Federalists. The presentation will be followed by an informal discussion with federalist activists and friends in a café setting.
