In the Fifties, the relevance of the Pontificia opera di assistenza was due to the inadequacy of the Italian welfare state, which was not supported by sufficient financial resources because of the imbalances and heterogeneity of the national economy. The POA took advantage of American aid and international reconstruction programs, it opposed Communism and it played a role in Christianizing Italian society during the pontificate of Pius XII. It was a direct emanation of the papacy and interfered in the hierarchical relationship between bishops and the Pope, exactly when a national Episcopal collegiality was taking shape with difficulty. The POA was against the state monopoly on social assistance and mainly worked in the areas which were less supported by ordinary state intervention. In spite of its clerical perspective, it considered social service as a development feature, even though it was not always able to go beyond a mere donation of material aid.
