The Launch of Giovanni Moro’s New Book, La moneta della discordia
Italian sociologist Giovanni Moro's newest book, La moneta della discordia, will be presented at the Rappresentanza della Commissione Europea in Rome on Tuesday, November 29 at 5:30 pm. Published as part of the UniCredit-supported research project, "The Other Side of the Coin: The Single Currency and European Citizenship," the book is in recognition of the euro's tenth anniversary.
La moneta della discordia investigates the "hidden side" of the euro and its relationship not only with banks and governments, but with all EU citizens. The introduction of the single European currency brought about new identities, relationships, values, cultural patterns and lifestyles. Moro's book also includes an interview with Romano Prodi, the former Italian Prime Minister and President of the European Commission who steered Italy to adopt the euro.
Moro will introduce his book at the event, while presentations will be given by Emma Bonino, Vice-President of the Italian Senate; Birgit Schönau, Die Zeit's Italy correspondent; Michele Sorice, Professor of Political Communication at LUISS Guido Carli University; and Giuseppe Scognamiglio, UniCredit's Head of Public Affairs.
The event will be introduced by Clara Albani, Director of the Information Office - European Parliament in Italy, and moderated by Teresa Petrangolini, Secretary-General of Cittadinanzattiva.
