THREE TALKS WITH MASSIMO SCIALLA. UNITED STATES OF EUROPE: IS IT A DREAM?
Europe is under pressure to protect its unity for several reasons: the impact of Brexit, the migration crisis, increasing Russian assertiveness, instability in the Middle East and Mediterranean area. On top of all that, there are signs of a possible radical change of policy on Europe and NATO by President Trump’s Administration, while in the background we have the emergence of disruptive populist and euro-sceptic forces.
