TO THE READER
Fenestra Finnorum in urbem et orbem - the window for Finns into the city and the world is the motto of Villa Lante, the Finnish Institute in Rome. For more than 50 years it has been a seat for research and artistic work, a place to understand the depth of the roots of our European culture and to see them in the context of a wider horizon.

The Finnish Institute considers its role not only as a place of research but it also wants to contribute to debates in society. Consequently, the year of Finnish presidency of the European Union was seen as a good opportunity for Villa Lante to be the venue of a seminar and discussion on European ideas, their roots, present and future. The colloquium was held in September 2006.

The European discussion about ideas and identity greatly depends on the media. Therefore, invitations were directed to journalists from important newspapers or other media resulting in a seminar of high level participation from all over Europe.
The presentations given by prominent experts of their fields inspired lively discussions and interesting viewpoints. We are happy to publish the keynote speeches in this volume.

The success of the colloquium was based on the contribution of the speakers and the paiticipants alike. On behalf of the Foundation Institutum Romanum Finlandiae I have great pleasure in thanking them and also the co-organizers, the Finnish Ministry for Foreign Affairs and Edita Publishing Ltd., for their good co-operation.

I also wish to thank the Helsingin Sanomat Foundation and the Foreign Ministry’s Department for Communication and Culture for their financial support, without which the seminar and this book could not have been realized.

Paavo Hohti Chairman of the Board, Foundation Institutum Romanum Finlandiae
