"The outlook for Italy brightens ... - Italy's GDP stopped falling in the third quarter of 2013, sustained by exports and stock-building, and business surveys and the performance of industrial production suggest barely positive growth in the fourth. The indicators of business confidence rose further in December, regaining the levels recorded at the start of 2011."
From the Economic Bulletin of the Bank of Italy, January 2014.
Also the IMF just has revised up it's economic outlook.
All in all, positive signs for the real estate market in Italy!
