[…] if public opinion can be conscious that Europe has seen the light thanks to its Founding Fathers, nowadays, Europe of citizens grows and strengthens thanks to the action of creative women: the Mothers of Europe. (Prix Femmes d’Europe, Bruxelles, May 1992)
The idea of this project is to show a new way of being European by illustrating and enhancing the role of the Founding Mothers of Europe. History can be told differently; not only as a series of winners and losers, of kings, queens, battles, of wars and hate, but also as the intertwining of peace, useful inventions, cooperation and solidarity between peoples. It is this kind of history that we need to share; particularly in times of crisis.
