Three exhibitions are being put on. Ever Closer Union features 14 panels about the history of European integration since the Treaties of Rome to the current challenges. Arranged in cooperation with the Historical Archives of the EU, the Alcide De Gasperi Research Centre of the European University Institute and the Italian Institute and Embassy in Belgrade, the exhibition was launched in Belgrade on 26 April and will be displayed in many other locations around Serbia throughout the year.
