Suitable for all

Simona Colarizi is the fourth guest in the cycle of five lectures delivered by some of the most distinguished contemporary historians. The lectures will investigate the European dimension by reflecting on the human urge to cross borders, whether driven by curiosity or despair, hunger or the desire to conquer and always transforming themselves and others.

A hundred years have passed since the Treaty of Versailles and thirty since the fall of the Berlin Wall. They are two dates that had opened Europeans’ hearts to hope. In 1919, a few months after the end of one of the most terrible world conflicts in human history, Europeans pledged to live in peace and to honour their brotherhood for the years to come. In 1989, when the “Iron Curtain” that had been dividing peoples for almost half a century was tore down, hope seemed to have become a certainty. But facts would contradict these great expectations. Only twenty years passed between the First and the Second World War and in the early 90s, less than five years since the fall of the Wall, the clouds of a civil war gathered again over Yugoslavia.
