Europe grows in a rickety way.
United at first on an economic then political sharing, the European countries pool more and more. Nevertheless, Europe is lacking a third support to secure its stability. Beyond political and economic issues it calls for Europe of the peoples, relying on society, identity and brotherhood.
The youth feels more European today than ever, peoples forget frontier posts, currencies,diomatic differences, settled nationalism.
In order to shape itself, this new multiple identity requires tools and symbols. In order to become a reality, this longing needs grounds of expression.
A generic and egalitarian infrastructure.
The European territory must be also meshed throughout the distribution of generic structures geographically balanced.
A modular and varied content.
The programs and the spaces must be able to build up and deconstruct themselves,evolve and reinvent according to place and time.
A cultural life for the people.
Culture is a sandbox, a playground where the art forms, actors and spectators meet and confront themselves. It is the vital cement for the construction of Europe of the peoples.
The ambition of a close Europe relies on cultural activity to transform an institutional federation into a nation sharing its cultures and its histories. It is the path from cohabitation to the creation of a family. These structures will be the proof of a higher will to bring up the relations between the peoples for centuries. Vestiges will remain the testimony of the humanist ambition which Europe is coming up today.
