Twenty-five years ago, citizens' uprisings across Eastern Europe overthrew totalitarian regimes and led to the fall of the Iron Curtain. Since then, the death strip that once divided Europe has been turned into the European Green Belt, a unique ecological network that both commemorates Europe's turbulent 20th century history and bears witness to civil society's power in the struggle for freedom and democracy.

This exhibition is being co-organised by the EESC and the European Green Belt Initiative. It will be opened on the JDE ground floor by the EESC president, Henry Malosse. Other speakers include Gabriel Schwaderer (European Green Belt Initiative), Adalbert Kienle (EESC member) and François Wakenhut (European Commission, tbc).

From 30 October to 25 November, the EESC will be exhibiting a selection of original documents belonging to the Fellini Foundation. The foundation has the world's largest archive of artefacts such as letters, photos, contracts, costumes etc. relating to "il maestro" (9 000 original documents).

The exhibition is designed as a journey themed around a circus – a venue where art and artists co-exist, and an environment that fired Federico Fellini's imagination throughout his career.
