    Thanks for the information. One basic issue that everyone is thinking of and you didn’t referred to is price. Let say that I still want to buy a property in Italy. For sure, the situation has effect on the prices of properties, up , down, now, later etc. I think that if you want to encourage people to invest you should say something about trends. Even to say “we are not sure what is going to be with prices” but at least to say something. Its obvious that you have your interests but still, may be to send a link to two opinions of Italian economists.
