Rome, Dec 1 (IANS): The annual inflation rate in Italy fell to 0.8 per cent in November 2023, the lowest recorded value since March 2021, according to government data.

In November, the Italian national consumer price index for the entire collectivity, including tobacco products, recorded a decrease of 0.4 per cent on a monthly basis and an increase of 0.8 per cent on an annual basis, reports Xinhua news agency.
