Abstract

This work focuses on the European Commission information policy to-wards Italy between 1969 and 1979, a seminal decade characterised by the evolution of the European integration process and widespread polit-ical and social crisis in the Italian peninsula. Drawing on primary sources from several institutional and private archival collections stored at the Historical Archives of the European Union in Florence, the article argues that the European Commission interpreted its information policy according to a clear-cut political rationale, based on the need to legiti-mise the “image” of Europe in Italy. This effort was, however, an implic-it admission of the limits of a European consciousness, which the Euro-pean institution spasmodically aimed to shape
