Generation Schengen

by Michela Turrina
To us, tra­vel­ling around Europe, boo­king a train ticket for a city close by or for a city at the other side of Europe is equally easy: just a cou­ple of clicks. Howe­ver, it has not always been like that. Nowa­days, we can enjoy this easy way of tra­vel­ling thanks to the Schen­gen agree­ment. Such agree­ment is con­si­de­red one of the hugest suc­ces­ses of Euro­pean inte­gra­tion, second only to the long las­ting peace that the con­ti­nent is wit­nessing since 1945.
