The benchmark interest rate in Italy is set by the European Central Bank. ECB policymakers discussed a smaller increase in bond purchases under the PEPP and agreed that the central bank did not need to use the envelope in full if favorable financing conditions could be maintained, the accounts of the March's meeting showed. Also, officials noted that that the pick-up in nominal yields reflected almost entirely markets’ reappraisal of the inflation outlook; while it was argued that higher real rates were not necessarily a cause for concern and should not trigger a policy intervention if they reflected higher growth prospects rather than higher real term premia. Last month, the ECB said it would conduct emergency bond purchases at a significantly higher pace over the April-June period, aiming to bring government bond yields down and to support the Eurozone economic recovery. source: European Central Bank
