Spread drops to 175 points (ANSA) - Rome, March 6 - The spread between Italian and German 10-year bonds fell to a four-year low of 175.5 points with a yield of 3.39 Thursday amid continued optimism new Premier Matteo Renzi can achieve long-awaited structural reforms.

The yield spread, the premium investors pay to hold Italian paper rather than ultra-safe AAA-rated Bunds, is a key measure of investor confidence in the Italian economy and the government's ability to pay down Italy's huge debt.
