Pope John XXIII releases his last encyclical, Pacem in Terris (Peace on Earth). Coming two years after the construction of the Berlin Wall and a few months after the Cuban Missile Crisis, Pope John XXIII calls for greater international cooperation among different nations and an end to uncritical hostility usually showed towards communist countries.

Critics complain that this encyclical makes Marxism and communism appear respectable, thus leading to an increase in power of leftist political parties in Italy.
