Statistics agency revises down initial forecast

(ANSA) - Rome, March 15 - ISTAT said Friday that Italy's annual inflation rate was 1% in February. The national statistics agency revised down the figure after putting the February inflation rate at 1.1% in its flash estimate.
    Nevertheless, this still made for increase from the 0.9% inflation rate posted the previous month. ISTAT said that, in month-on-month terms, its consumer-price index was up 0.1% in February with respect to January.
