Italy was one of the first European countries to develop an atomic policy and one of the first to shut down its nuclear power plants. How can we explain the peculiarity of Italy’s experience? This lecture will examine the history of Italy’s civilian nuclear programme during the Cold War, when atomic energy symbolised both the promise of unlimited growth and the threat of global annihilation.
