Cittanova d'Istria marks the accession of Croatia to the EU
Among the several ceremonies marking the accession of Croatia to the European Union, a particularly significative one was held in Cittanova d'Istria on 30 June, supported by the region Friuli Venezia Giulia with the project AGROWINE. During the 'white night', hundred people gathered at the premises of the Italian Community.
ALDA President Oriano Otočan and the President of the Regional Council of the Region Friuli Venezia Giulia Franco Iacop attended the event. During their speeches, they highlighted how "achieving the result of an European Croatia happened thanks to the will of the Croatian population to adhere to the ideals of freedom, democracy and free trade which are the basis of Europe. The Istria Region in the past years shined for its politics of coexistance and common work, which saw the Italian community as a protagonist".
