A travelling exhibition showcasing material from the Historical Archives of the European Union will be on display in multiple institutions across the UK and Ireland over the coming months. The exhibition is titled Ever Closer Union: the legacy of the Treaties of Rome for Today's Europe, 1957-2017, and it will mark 60 years since the signing of the Rome Treaty. It consists of 14 panels displaying material from the Historical Archives of the European Union. These visually illustrate the history of European integration from the signing of the Rome Treaties to the present day.
