The idea to create a Museum of Europe in Brussels was born from a triple assessment: Europe exists; its citizens do not know much about it and, what is worse, do not want to know anything; and, since nothing is done without the citizens’ approval in a democracy, it is important to develop a pedagogy for Europe. A history museum is an excellent tool to do this, among others.
The Mosque of Cordoba is one of the great sites of European memory. With its famous colonnade, its semi-circular arches and the alternating red and white voussoirs it is one of Spain’s major tourist attractions, and also a reminder of its Moorish past.
