Italy's consumer prices rose by 0.5 percent year-on-year in December 2016 after increasing by 0.1 percent in November, matching the preliminary estimate. It was the highest inflation rate since May 2014, mainly boosted by rising prices for food and transport.

In the full year 2016, the average CPI fell 0.1 percent, the first annual drop since 1959, following a 0.1 percent gain in 2015.
