Italian inflation at 1.1%, lowest level since 2009

Rome, May 14 - Istat said on Tuesday that Italy's inflation rate fell to 1.1% in April, the lowest level since December 2009. It was the seventh consecutive drop as Italy's longest recession in 20 years continues to keep price increases low. The inflation figure was lower than the preliminary forecast of 1.2% that the national statistics agency gave late last month. The fall in April with respect to the 1.6% inflation rate of March was caused primarily by drops in energy prices.
