Mariano Rumor

Rumor, Mariano, 1915-90, Italian politician. A Christian Democrat, he was premier (1968-69, 1969-70, 1973-74) and foreign minister (1974-76). He was mentioned (1976) in the Lockheed Corp. bribery scandal and narrowly avoided indictment.

Mariano Rumor (June 16, 191522 January, 1990) was an Italian politician, a member of the Democrazia Cristiana and several times Prime Minister of Italy.

He was born in Vicenza, Veneto. He graduated in Letters and was elected to the Constituent Assembly (which was opening the way for the new Italian Parliament of the Italian Republic) in 1946.

In 1973, Interior Minister Mariano Rumor was attacked by Gianfranco Bertoli, a self-described anarchist. Four were killed during the bombing, and 45 injured, while Rumor escaped alive from it. Bertoli was served a life-term in 1975. Bertoli was an informant of Sifar at the time, and was in the early 1990s linked to Operation Gladio. Court proceedings showed that this connection was one of mistaken identity.
