Murge: The Cold War Front

Year
2011
Duration
52 minutes

For 13 days in 1962, the world was on the brink of nuclear war. Krushchev’s decision to place nuclear weapons in Cuba sparked the Cuban Missile Crisis. But what’s relatively unknown is that he was responding to an earlier perceived threat from America: the stationing of nuclear weapons in Murge, Italy - within striking distance of the USSR. We reveal how Murge was transformed unwittingly into a theatre of the Cold War.
