Parliament's President Antonio Tajani and other leading MEPs took part in the celebration of the 60th anniversary of the Treaty of Rome on Saturday. “Today is a day of celebration, of European pride.(...) But we must also reflect on our mistakes, and change the image of a remote, ineffectual Europe. Only in this way can we give our young people the feeling that they are part of a great project once again. Let us allow them to dream once again about a better Europe and a better world,” said President Tajani.Press release
