L’Europa e il Minotauro dell’Euro

Paolo Becchi


The essay traces some of the decisive stages that have characterized, in modern times, the genesis and development of the idea of Europe, leading up to a critical interrogation of today’s European Union, analyzed from the point of view of the great European cultural season. In the essay the author employs the expression “European coup” in reference to the single currency and throws into sharp relief all the aporias and contradictions connected with it and made possible by the “European treaties”.
