Abstract

Only in January 1973 Italy decided to establish normal diplomatic relations with the GDR. The choice, in the end, was to wait for the definitive normalization of inter-German relations, sanctioned by the Basic Treaty and the full implementation of Brandt’s Ostpolitik, before activating any kind of official contact with the East German authorities. For the socialists, however, the Italian government should have tackled the problem of relations with the GDR in a less schematic way, adopting a pragmatic and gradual approach. The article thus aims to analyze the peculiarities of this political strategy through the PSI official documents.
