Italy was one of the original six founder members of the earliest

post-WW2 European communities, and the treaty which established the

European Economic Community (EEC) is called the Treaty of Rome.

In the aftermath of World War 2 there was a deterimination in

much of Western Europe to build a new, prosperous, interdepenendent

and peaceful Europe. It's been such a huge success that many

countries are clamouring for admission to the EU.
