Italian inflation accelerates to 1.9% in July - Istat

Wednesday 11 August 2021 | 14:55 CET | News
Italy's annual inflation rate came in at 1.9 percent in July, up from 1.3 percent in June and the highest rate since the end of 2018, according to final figures from statistics agency Istat. The agency's preliminary July reading was for 1.8 percent. The country's inflation turned positive for the first time in 8 months in January and the trend has continued since then, due above all to higher energy prices. Istat also reported an increase in the price of processed food, reversing the decline seen in June.
