This study is based on a document stored in the diplomatic archives of the Italian Foreign Ministry, an overview of the internal life of the diplomatic corps accredited in Bucharest in 1946. The document's author, Pietro Gerbore, charge d'affaires ad interim of Italy in Bucharest, describes the diplomatic life in the Romanian capital. The diplomats in Bucharest are already grouped into political blocks, each of them not communicating with the other: the block under soviet influence and the block of all Western democracies. The thankless situation of the Apostolic Nuncio in Bucharest is also reflected in the acephalic state of the diplomatic corps in the Romanian capital and highlights the Soviet ambassador's tendency to take over leadership of the foreign representative corps. The Italian diplomat criticizes the performance of the U.S. representatives in Bucharest, as well as the attitude of the USSR and satellite countries' diplomats, that have abandoned diplomatic traditions. The most illustrious members of the diplomatic corps accredited in Bucharest are considered ambassadors of Sweden and Denmark.
