Bridges and Walls indicate both a breakpoint in space and time. On the one hand, bridges give space unity; on the other hand, walls institutionalize division. Both walls and bridges, however, give sense to time and space. During the seminar we will discuss the importance of real and symbolic bridges and walls in the recent history of Europe. In particular, we will concentrate on the role of memory as a bridge and a wall in Europe since the end of WWII.

On December 6, 2016 will be held a seminar entitled "New Perspectives on Europe, its history and the youth." The next day, December 7, Andrea Griffante will be engaged in the project results presentation "Walls and Integration".

The political and economic changes that occurred in Italy after the end of World War II had strong social consequences. Youth culture in the 1970s and 1980s witnessed such changes and represented a reaction to them. The new wave of engagement in politics and social issues which youth culture witnessed and to a certain extent generated, however, was not limited to Italy and Western Europe. In the same decades the youth emerged as a new social actor also on the other side of the Iron Curtain. Was it the first step for a renewed European conscience and memory?
