Abstract

The Marshall Plan in Italy, as we know from the record, was intended to do two things. Introduced in the second half of 1947, it was intended to improve the electoral chances of the parties opposed to socialism, and, if possible, to give the Christian Democrats complete command of the new Parliament which was soon to be elected. That was the immediate objective, the lifeline thrown to "western values" in Italy.
