Figure slightly better than expected

(ANSA) - ROME, FEB 2 - ISTAT said Tuesday that Italy's GDP fell by 8.8% in 2020 with respect to the previous year, in a preliminary estimate based on raw quarterly data. The national statistics agency said the drop was 8.9% according to its calendar-adjusted estimate.
