Abstract: 
Between 1966 and 1975 the signature and ratification of the Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT) were some of the most momentous foreign policy decisions the Italian government had to make. This chapter is an attempt to provide a plausible explanation for the intensity of the debate that the Treaty stimulated, and more specifically for the long delay between the Italian signing (1969) and the ratification (1975) of the Treaty. It is based on a variety of Italian, American and British sources, namely the personal papers of Aldo Moro, Amintore Fanfani and Giulio Andreotti (respectively stored in the Italian Central Archives, in the Italian Senate’s Historical Archive, and in the Historical Archive of the Luigi Sturzo Institute), the papers of the disarmament office of the Italian Foreign Ministry (at the Ministry’s Historical Archive), and the papers of the Diplomatic Counsellor to the Prime Minister (at the State Central Archive); the ACDA Director’s Office NPT files and the main records of the Department of State (RG 59) at the National Archives at College Park (Maryland), and a number of collections from the British National archives at Kew.
