ROME. KAZINFORM Italy's GDP may fall by as much as 13% in a worst-case scenario this year, Bank of Italy Governor Ignazio Visco said Friday. That scenario would see a «very slow» recovery from the coronavirus pandemic next year, he said.

He called for a collective «concrete commitment» and the start of a «constructive dialogue between the government, businesses and finance, institutions, and civil society». This is because, he said «no one must lose hope».
