Gramsci, Sraffa e la «famigerata lettera» di Grieco - Gramsci, Sraffa and Grieco’s «notorious» Letter discusses an important episode in the prison life of Gramsci: that of a letter sent him by his comrade Grieco in 1928, a letter Gramsci suspected to have been sent with the aim of damaging his position in the impending trial before the Fascist "Tribunale Speciale". The thesis put forward by Luciano Canfora, that the letter had been tampered with by the police, with the addition of the compromising passages, is critically discussed. Canfora also asserts that Sraffa would have furnished widely different interpretations of this episode at different times, for "party reasons". This is shown to be contradicted by the available evidence.
Key words: Communism, Fascism, Gramsci.
