On the occasion of the celebrations for the 60th anniversary of the Treaties of Rome (1957-2017), the itinerant exhibition "Ever closer union" – The Legacy of the Treaties of Rome for Today’s Europe will be displayed at Alliance Française de Hong Kong from Thursday 20 July to Saturday 12 August 2017. This exhibition is the result of a collaboration among the Archives of the Council of the European Union, the Historical Archives of the European Union, the European Parliament and the European Commission, with contributions from the European Investment Bank, the Italian Presidency of the Council of Ministers, The Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and ANSA.

The exhibition, made up of 14 panels in English, narrates the history and successes of the first 60 years of the European Union and illustrates the historical steps that led to its constitution taking into consideration its economic, political and social aspects. The final part is dedicated to the contemporary challenges being faced by the European Union, including the preservation of the environment, the migration crisis, the question of internal cohesion among member states and the role of the EU on the international arena.

 

Lecture presented by Ms. Maria Goretti Tai (Thursday 27 July 2017, 7:00pm)

The lecture also includes a hands-on tutorial on how to build an origami of the EU peace dove.

On 25 March 1957, the Treaties of Rome were signed by Belgium, France, Germany, Italy, Luxembourg and the Netherlands in Rome, establishing the European Economic Community (EEC) and the European Atomic Energy Community (Euratom). The objective was to create a 'common market' based on the free circulation of people, goods, services and capital – collectively known as the 'Four Rights'. These fundamental values have provided the conditions for prosperity and stability of the European Union over the past 60 years.

This presentation, to inaugurate the itinerant exhibition, gives an overview of the 'Four Rights' that have been acting as a catalyst promoting the peaceful cooperation, respect for human dignity, freedom, democracy, equality and the rule of law among European member states and citizens.

 

Maria Goretti Tai is currently completing a Juris Doctor postgraduate law degree at The Chinese University of Hong Kong. She holds a MA in Cultural Experience Design and Management from Domus Academy (Italy), a BA (French, Italian, Fine Art) from The University of Hong Kong (Hong Kong) and a DEUF from L’Université Jean Moulin – Lyon 3 (France).

Specialized in combining the disciplines of art and law, her research interests include art and cultural heritage law, EU law and public international law. The title of her dissertation is 'Keyhole to St. Peter's – Holy See, the Custodian of Catholic Church's Cultural Heritage'. She has also researched on Italian art tax law, her work is entitled 'Branding the Future of Cultural Heritage, a Sustainable Legal Model'.
