This chapter examines the Partito Comunista Italiano's (PCI) perception and presentation of the movements of the second cycle of contention in Italy from 1972 to 1977. It analyses the key framing strategies employed by the PCI's daily paper l'Unità in relation to the key movements of the second cycle. It discusses the party's description of radical groups as adventurists, the youth movement as disorganised lumpenproletariat, and the armed groups as provocateur. This chapter suggests the weight given to these different framings corresponds to the different stages of the PCI's interaction with the movements.

Keywords:   PCI, cycle of contention, Italy, l'Unità, radical groups, adventurists, youth movement, disorganised lumpenproletariat, armed groups, provocateur
