Has been extended until May 3, 2015 the exhibition entitled “for the sake of peace – The long way towards Europe” organised in Palazzo Ducale “ sala dello scrutinio” during the Italian Presidency of the Council of the European Union (July 1 – December 31, 2014).
The exhibition, which focuses on the theme of peace as a supreme value of European culture, collects the valuable documentary heritage from the Archivio di Stato di Venezia, cartographic images and peace treaties between European powers since the peace of Bologna in 1529 to the Declaration on human rights enacted in 1789.The succession of events documented suggests a progressive and growing awareness on the part of European leaders who can see the need to use policy tools to avoid the damages of the increasingly destructive wars , especially for the civilian populations in Europe.
