“Sixty years ago, six nations signed the Treaty of Rome, through which they accepted to give up part of their sovereignty for a transcendent ideal: peace. In order to stop governments from going back on the destructive path of militarism, these nations gave up control of their production of coal and steel to a superior authority. They did so with the idea that time would have made the internal ties between nations stronger and the cost of a war too high. Ensuring peace and making war contrary to national interests: this is the principle upon which the contemporary European Union is built.

In the anniversary of the Treaty of Rome, this article aims at using the example of a key advocate of the European project, Carlo Azeglio Ciampi, to retrace five lessons on the role of politics within a democracy.
