Manifesto of Ventotene
Memorial plaque commemorating the forced exile of Eugenio Colorni, Ernesto Rossi and Altiero
Spinelli - co-authors of the Manifesto of Ventotene, an early call for a free and united Europe.
It was adopted by the European Federalist Movement - who called for a federation of European states
that would be sufficiently interdependent to make further wars impossible.
They were just three of several hundred opponents of Mussolini's regime who were interned on
Ventotene during the early years of World War II.
