Abstract

The paper undergoes some topics of the research project named ARCGER promoted by the Italian Institute for German Studies in Rom. It focuses mostly on the surveillance policies organized by national institutions and by foreign secret services on Italian intellectuals between 1938 and 1955. Dealing with the World War II years it is necessary to collect documents concerning government control strategies of the already mentioned institutions, especially in relation to the German cultural canon and more specific to the role of the Italian Institute for German Studies. Dealing with the Post-War period is noteworthy to analyze the pressure exerted on the Italian and German intellectuals by the Congress for Cultural Freedom (CCF), a secret propaganda institute financially supported by the American Secret Services (CIA). Interesting is also the activity promoted by the Italian Association for Cultural Freedom (national section of the CCF), where Carlo Antoni and Ignazio Silone play a decisive intellectual role.
