Consumer prices in Italy are expected to decrease 0.1 percent year-on-year in May of 2020, after showing no growth in the previous month and in line with market expectations. It was the first fall in consumer prices since October of 2016, mainly due to a steeper decline in prices of non-regulated energy products (-12.2 percent vs -7.6 percent). The annual core inflation rate, which excludes energy and unprocessed food is set to rise to 0.9 percent from 0.8 percent in the prior month. Excluding only energy, inflation is seen rising to 1.1 percent from 1 percent in April. On a monthly basis, consumer prices are likely to drop 0.1 percent, down from a 0.1 percent gain in the prior month.
