The Final Act of the Congress of Vienna was signed exactly 200 years ago, on June 9, 2015.
On this occasion, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Development has produced a web documentary available as of today at the following address:
This documentary, which includes interviews with Laurent Fabius and several former ministers of foreign affairs, documents the diplomatic achievements of Talleyrand and the new European equilibrium that he helped establish.
The “Congress of Vienna and the creation of a new Europe” exhibition, organized by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Development Archives Directorate, will display, until August 31, 2015, at the Carnavalet Museum, the original of the Final Act of the Congress of Vienna of June 8, 1815, as well as many previously unpublished documents. A round table open to the public will take place in collaboration with the German Historical Institute at the Carnavalet Museum on June 16 at 3:00 pm on the theme of “Paris-Vienna, 1814-1815: unknown sources, new sources.”
