Operation Gladio

Full article: Operation Gladio

Vincenzo Vinciguerra is a central figure in Allan Francovich's 1992 film about Gladio. He was not a senior figure, but was well informed about the structure of the organisations. In an interview for the film, he well summarized the principle behind the NATO backed strategy of tension that was followed in Italy, and why it went unexposed for so long.


In 1984 Italian Judge Felice Casson reopened the investigation into the Peteano Bombing, which eventually lead him to order the arrest of Vinciguerra.[1]

A Quote by Vincenzo Vinciguerra

Strategy of tension“When you were on the Right you were not supposed to attack the State or its representatives. You were supposed to attack civilians, women, children, innocent people from outside the political arena. For one simple reason: To force the Italian public to turn to the State turn to the regime and ask for greater security. This was precisely the role of the right in Italy. It placed itself at the service of the State which created a strategy aptly called the "Strategy of Tension" in so far as they had to get ordinary people to accept that at any moment over a period of 30 years, from 1960 to the mid eighties a state of emergency could be declared. So, people would willingly trade part of their freedom for the security of being able to walk the streets, go on trains or enter a bank. This is the political logic behind all the bombings. They remain unpunished because the state cannot condemn itself.”Operation Gladio (film)
