This article casts new light on the point of view of West German public opinion on Italy in 1977, by analyzing the image portrayed by three major press sources: Der Spiegel, Die Zeit and Frankfurter Allgemeine. Their attention was almost entirely focused on the historic compromise, eurocommunism, the students’ protest and, most of all, Italy’s transformation into an increasingly insecure and violent country. Old and new stereotypes about the Italians were frequently recalled in the articles, reportages and interviews analyzed in this essay.
Keywords: West German-Italian relations, stereotypes, public opinion, historic compromise, eurocommunism, social and political violence
