Lecture de la maquette du Pont de l’Europe (1989) de Gaetano PESCE

Abstract : In September 1989 the City of Strasbourg exhibited at the "Salon des Utopies" in the Grand Palais in Paris a model of a "Bridge for Europe" designed by Gaetano Pesce, architect, designer and philosopher. This bridge in the form of an "S", representing the initial of Strasbourg, was designed to cross the Rhine upstream of the city to link France in the West with Germany in the East. In 1989 the European Economic was composed of only twelve states each of which was represented on Gaetano Pesce's model twice: first by a national pavilion situated on the bridge; second by a schematic map of a Europe of the Twelve shown on the floor of the bridge, N/S. The extension of the European Union, among other reasons, rendered the execution of this project out of date. Since December 2013 this model has been exhibited in the section dedicated to Europe in Strasbourg's History Museum.
