Highlights
Consumer prices provisionally rose 0.4 percent on the month in December to leave the annual inflation rate unchanged at 0.9 percent, the first time it has not fallen since August.

The flash HICP was slightly softer, increasing a monthly 0.3 percent which saw its yearly rate dip from 1.1 percent to 1.0 percent.

Within the CPI basket, a rise in annual inflation in transport services (2.8 percent from 2.2 percent) was offset by a fall in non-processed food (2.5 percent from 3.2 percent) and non-regulated energy (4.4 percent from 5.0 percent). The core rate, which excludes energy and fresh food, was unchanged at 0.4 percent, a tick short of its mark at the start of the year.

Underlying inflation in Italy continues to move sideways and at a low enough level to mean that deflation risks cannot be ignored.

Definition
The consumer price index (CPI) is a measure of the average price level of a fixed basket of goods and services purchased by consumers. Monthly and annual changes in the CPI provide widely used measures of inflation. A provisional estimate, with limited detail, is released about two weeks before the final data are reported.  Why Investors Care
