Ever since the Schengen Agreement was signed in 1985, internal borders between a large number of European countries are gradually disappearing. The entire Schengen Area, comprising of 26 European countries and 16,500 kilometers of borders, have abolished passport and any type of border control allowing free movement of goods, information, money and people. The Schengen Agreement marks great progress in the gradual unification of Europe and the development of a European consciousness. This transformation in European relations was highlighted when the Nobel Peace Prize was awarded to the European Union on 10 December 2012.

Italian photographer Valerio Vincenzo has spent the last eight years photographing these internal boundaries that have slowly faded from the landscape and from people’s minds. Equipped with a medium-format camera, a GPS, guides and detailed maps, Vincenzo travelled through the entire European Union crossing over these borders more than a thousand times.
