Centro di eccellenza Altiero Spinelli

Centro di eccellenza Altiero Spinelli (CeAS) was founded in 2003 with the financial contribution of  the European Commission, within the framework of the Jean Monnet Action for the establishment of university centres of excellence, to support research and training activities in the field of European integration studies.

The Centre is dedicated to Altiero Spinelli, one of the most illustrious figures of European federalism, whose work and whose commitment, since the “Manifesto of Ventotene”,  marked the start of the integration process and its development, in particular with the 1984 Draft Treaty establishing the European Union (commonly known as “Spinelli Project”), which has become a major source of inspiration for all the European Union (EU) Treaties.
