60 years ago, on March 25 1957, the leaders of six countries sat down in Rome to sign the treaty which established the European Economic Community, the basis of the EU today. Six decades on, while the bloc has grown, one member, the UK, has decided to leave and anti-EU political parties are on the rise. So is this the beginning of the end for the EU, or is there something to celebrate?
FRANCE 24 meets some of the grandchildren of the men who signed the Treaty of Rome to see how they feel the EU has changed their lives.
