European Quarter of Brussels - Statue of Europe "Unity in Peace"

This monumental work is dedicated to Europe and offered to the European Commission by the French sculptor Bernard Romain. It was placed at the heart of the European quarter within the unique crossroads of peoples and cultures that is Brussels, and was inaugurated on 9 December 2003 by Mr. Neil Kinnock, then Vice-President of the Commission, and Mrs. Viviane Reding, Commissioner at the occasion of the year 2003 which was devoted to disabled people as well as the historical enlargement of the Union.

This exhilarating work carries a universal message of brotherhood, tolerance and hope; the statue of Europe - ´Unity in Peace` - was manufactured, modelled, polished and painted by children with challenged vision of different cultures under the supervision of Bernard Romain.
