Italian-hosted international multi-sport event, officially known as the Games of the XVII Olympiad (Italian: Giochi della XVII Olimpiade) and commonly known as Rome 1960 (Roma 1960), held from 25 August to 11 September 1960 in Rome. Rome had previously been awarded the administration of the 1908 Summer Olympics, but following the eruption of Mount Vesuvius in 1906, the city had no choice but to decline and pass the honour to London. The Soviet Union won the most gold and overall medals at the 1960 Games.

Sy Scholfield quotes news report, Daily News (New York City), 26 August 1960, page C20: "Rome, Aug. 25... At exactly 5:43 P. M. Gronchi officially opened the Games." An article in Italian gives 5:46 PM: "Da quel 25 agosto, cominciarono a Roma due settimane romane davvero indimenticabili, con i Giochi olimpici a tutta tv. Alle ore 17.46 venivano ufficialmente aperti i Giochi in un’Italia reduce dall’organizzazione nel 1956 dei VII Giochi invernali di Cortina d’Ampezzo, e a distanza di quattro anni ancora con i riflettori del mondo puntati per un evento unico ed irripetibile" [1].
