Italy - Harmonized Inflation (end of period)

Inflation softens in September following four consecutive months of acceleration

According to provisional data released by the National Statistical Institute (ISTAT) on 28 September, consumer prices dropped 0.4% month-on-month in September, reversing August’s 0.4% increase. The figure largely reflected lower prices for services related to transport, and recreation and culture—mainly attributable to seasonal factors—which were partially offset by higher prices for education, and clothing and footwear. Meanwhile, inflation came in at 1.5% in September, below August’s 1.6% print and marking the first deceleration in five months.

Core consumer prices, which exclude more volatile categories such as unprocessed food and energy, dropped 0.6% month-on-month in September, contrasting August’s 0.5% rise. Meanwhile, core inflation remained stable at August’s 0.8% in September, and harmonized inflation was unchanged at the previous month’s 1.6%.
