The plans for liquidating the centre-left government in Italy in 1964 examines the difficult process of formation of the second Moro government. Using new archival evidence, the research aims at providing an original perspective of those events by enlargement to the economic dimension of the crisis. The alarm for the deteriorating economic situation was a key element in the management of the political crisis in July 1964. The A. argues that it was not by coincidence that the political crisis coincided with one of the most serious balance of payments crises of Italy since 1945.
