THE LOCARNO PACT EXHIBITION
At the end of the First World War, severe conditions were imposed on the defeated countries. Subsequent diplomatic negotiations favoured reconciliation between the nations and led to an international conference in Locarno and the signing of the Rhine Pact in 1925. Germany accepted the western border, guaranteed by England and Italy, and signed arbitration treaties with Belgium, France, Poland, and Czechoslovakia. The “spirit of Locarno” gave rise to a short period of collaboration in Europe, within the framework of the League of Nations. The Locarno agreements were denounced by Germany in 1936. The exhibition is accompanied by a journey through the significant places related to the event that took place in the city www.pattodilocarno.ch.
