Inflation down 0.2% to 0.5% in Feb (ANSA) - Rome, 28 February - Italy's annual inflation rate fell 0.2% to 0.5% in February, Istat said Friday. It was the lowest since October 2009, the statistics agency said in a preliminary estimate.

The drop was largely due to energy products, fuel and fresh food, Istat said.

The month-to-month inflation rate dropped 0.1%. The annual inflation rate remained flat at 0.7% in January, the same as December and November.
