From the 1950s until the late 1980s, Europe was besieged by a seemingly endless string of terrorist bombings.

the better known events were the bombings in Milan and Rome on Dec. 12,
1969. Four bombs killed 16 innocent persons and injured 80. The
bombings were blamed on a leftist magazine editor, Giangiacomo
Feltrinelli, when bomb-making materials were "found" in his home.

another notable attack in Bologna on Aug. 2, 1980, a massive explosion
in the train station killed 85 people. Blame for the attacks usually

code-named Gladio, was apparently the brainchild of James Angleton, head

Aug. 3, 1990, when Italian Prime Minister Giulio Andreotti made a full
disclosure to the Italian parliament, that the issue became front page
