Marco, what is your personal view of Europe?
Besides a mere continent, Europe is an idea of a community invented by people that, for centuries, struggled in wars with neighbors. Nevertheless, along with wars, long collaborations developed the idea that cooperation is far more important. Break down borders is indeed the first achievement for people that want to think, act and live free in this world. Europe must continue to go in this direction.
That said, I am in favour of Europe and the EU – I hope that the wave of nationalism which has beset the EU particularly in the last 10 years will pass and that EU nations forge ever closer ties, leading to Europe becoming one big community and possibly even eventually one big state.
