Summary/Abstract: The item insistently evoked each time it has been needed to show the common background of the communities which populate the European geographic area has always been culture. Although history has proven that this part of the world is the most affected by conflict and that the technical progress it has generated has developed along with the amplitude of conflicts, the Europeans have always tried to show what unites them, and to consolidate their identity forged in the wars generated by the proclamation of differences. For the EU, the cultural issue is not only a topic of debate for the elite, but it has also become a regulated field subject to a certain policy, which reflects the desire to impose a European cultural identity but is also accompanied by caution in what regards the management of the cultural diversity of European peoples.
