ABSTRACT
This article focuses on the political situation in Italy during 1952. In Rome, the long past is very much a part of the living present, perhaps more so than in any other great capital of the Western world. It is not entirely surprising therefore that the Italian Communists should have accepted as their equivalent of a political fair-haired boy in the election for local Roman offices on May 25 an elder statesman who held his first cabinet post the year before Theodore Roosvelt helped Woodrow Wilson defeat William Howard Taft. In between the two extremes is the official list assembled by Alcide de Gasperi and the leaders of the so-called democratic parties. Moreover, there were secret negotiations between the Christian Democrats and the reactionary monarch- ists; and it was only when the price, fixed by the far right proved, to be too high that de Gasperi announced that he would make no concessions to the anti-democrats.
