Administrative and Biographical History

The posters were collected by Nicola Di Gioia, who served as a European Commissioner officer at the DG for Education and Culture of the European Commission in Rome, Italy from 1962 to 2003.

Content and Structure


This collection consists of 1100 posters produced from 1957 to 2003 by EU institutions. The collection also includes some posters not created by EU institutions but related to European Union referendums or the EU founding values such as equality, freedom and democracy. The posters were designed to promote events, projects and awareness campaigns on social issues, economy, education, culture, research, technology and environmental issues of the European Union.

System of Arrangement

The classification plan of the posters was created without regards to the original order but within an artificial thematic one. Since quite a number of producers are unknown or inaccurate as, for example, European Communities or European Union, it was not possible to do a classification based on the context of creation but on subjects. Concretely the collection has been arranged into eight series reflecting the main themes to which they relate, namely Communication and Information Policy; Cultural and Identity Policy; Economic Policy; Education, Training, Youth and Sport; Enlargement, Cooperation and External relations; Environmental Issues; Fundamental and Social Rights; and Research and Technology.
