When Mitterrand arrived at the Elysée in 1981, he intended to strengthen the political relationship between France and Italy. In that period, Italy appeared to be particularly subdued to the US government; the goal of the French government was to push for the end of this subordination and to encourage Italy to accept an asymmetric relation with France. With the arrival of Andreotti at the Farnesina in 1983, in fact, Italy proved to have a more autonomous political attitude but the French government was forced to admit that this autonomy made French-Italian relationship more complicated.

Keywords: France; Italy; French-Italian relations; François Mitterrand; Giulio Andreotti.
