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.

It is a newspaper to which, until a few years ago, was paid little attention by historiography. Despite the connection with a CLN’s actively related political party and despite the words expressed by a “Father of the Republic” such as Leo Valiani directed at defining it as the greatest newspaper of the liberation’s fight period, in the Einaudi’s Dizionario della Resistenza, published in 2001, to the heading “Clandestine press” the PLI’s organization was not even mentioned.1 It is also worth to highlight that the PLI’s press reached its circulation record of 50.000 copies only in the city of Rome. Despite in the early stages the newspaper could not cope with a ← 517 | 518 → periodical publication due to limited-budget issues, it was always capable of maintaining a stable standard of daily periodicity throughout its existence. The newspaper took its roots in the milieu associated with the Movimento Liberale Italiano, through which the Italian liberals undertook a process of redeployment.2 The paper...
