It's called the " strategy of tension". The intention is to create fear in the populace and associate it with the rise of the left in the hope that people will turn to the "stability" (haha) of the right wing governments that have traditionally dominated in Italy. In short, it is state-sponsored terrorism on their own people. However, in this case, the target is a strange one. They usually choose well-populated trains or public squares in areas where unions are strong. Then they follow up by arresting local leftists (and occasionally throwing them out of 3rd floor windows). Bombing a school in Puglia named after an anti-mafia prosecutor does not seem like their usual pattern -- although the mafia connection is partially and indirectly relevant.
