Communicating Europe

Journals and European Integration 1939–1979

Edited By Daniele Pasquinucci, Daniela Preda and Luciano Tosi

This volume is dedicated to the debate on European unification developed between the end of World War II and 1979 in two types of magazines. The first type of magazines are those not exclusively dedicated to the «European» themes, but particularly significant for the impact they had in the cultural-political debate and in the concrete unfolding of the process of European integration; while the second type are militant magazines, belonging to the European and federalist area, whose proactive role was fundamental both for the theoretical elaboration of the ideas as the basis of the future of the European continent, and for the practical propaganda. All these publications contributed in different ways to the spread of knowledge of European integration, of its implications and of its political, social and economic consequences. No less important – and this is the third type of journals taken into consideration in the book – has been the birth and development of magazines directly sponsored by the Community institutions, whose action was framed within a real «European communication», made by the EC institutions, particularly the Commission in Brussels, since their origins.

CIME, the Relationship with the European Federalist Movement (EFM) and the Presidency of Giuseppe Petrilli

The Italian Council of the European Movement (CIME)1 was founded in December 1948 as the national section of the European Movement (EM) and the coordination structure for pro-Europeans intergroups in both the Chamber of Deputies and the Senate and of the European Federalist Movement (EFM).

This step was welcomed by Prime Minister Alcide De Gasperi, but the leading federalist Altiero Spinelli seemed rather sceptical about the usefulness of this organisation. This had significant consequences on the operational capacity of CIME which, apart from some actions in the period 1949-50 such as participating in the petition for the Pact of a Federal Union, quickly disappeared from the scene and provided the EFM with general control of the Italian pro-European front.
