On March 25, 1957, the Treaty of Rome that founded the European Economic Community was signed by the Federal Republic of Germany, Belguim, France, Italy, Luxembourg, and the Netherlands. It had as its goal the establishment of a customs union, by achieving free circulation of goods, consumer access to the best products, and priority to community goods. The dream of the original signatories, joined by Great Britain, Ireland, Denmark, Greece, Spain, and Portugal, has been an adventure, littered with obstacles and crossed by disappointment and hope, for Western Europe. Despite the difficulties encountered, the EEC has become a reality. It is a reality capable of improvement, but it is, nevertheless, a source of new adventures and a bearer of dreams for today's young Europeans. These three leitmotifs--dream, adventure, reality--are appropriately part of the title of this commemorative album published for the thirtieth anniversary of the signing of the Treaty of Rome.
