In Rome on 25 March 1957, Belgium, France, Germany, Italy, Luxembourg and the Netherlands signed two Treaties establishing the European Economic Community and Euratom. A first step towards the European Union.
Now, 60 years after the historical signing, Istat provides an original account of the evolution of Europe: it starts from the numbers to look beyond the differences between individual countries and focuses on overall changes, economic and social convergence, the effects of policies.
Divided in four different themes – population, society, labour, economy – one for each phenomenon investigated, Italy's data are compared with the E6 (the six founding countries) and the Eu28 aggregates (today's European Union) . The picture that emerges, in part unexpectedly, illustrates the long path followed, denies some rooted commonplace, and shows other perspectives of the current complex situation in Europe.
A representation of Europe’s dimensions in size, population and density introduces to the themes and phenomena.
October 20, 2017 the National Institute of Statistics and the Italian Statistical Society (Sis) promoted and organized the Italian Day of Statistics.
This year's event is the occasion to celebrate the 60th anniversary of the signing of the Treaties of Rome, the first step towards the establishment of the European Union. Istat has produced an original story of the evolution of the Union: Sixty years of Europe, looks beyond the differences between individual countries and, through facts and figures, examines overall changes, focusing on economic and social convergence, the relevance of phenomena and the effects of policies. This initiative is accompanied by the Italian version of the digital publication The Life of Women and Men in Europe, produced by Eurostat, which tells and illustrates the different lifestyles of European citizens.
