Italy's GDP grew by 0.4% in the second quarter compared to the previous year, and 1.5% year-on-year, its strongest pace since 2011. This acceleration is good news for the country, which had experienced two years recession before returning to a very small growth in 2014 (+0.1).
The recovery started with exports, then consumption increased and investments are now growing.
