This paper discusses key findings of the Financial System Stability Assessment for Italy. The assessment reveals that Italy’s financial system is sound, and no major vulnerabilities that could cause systemic risks are identified. The deep restructuring of the banking sector in the 1990s has helped improve the efficiency and competition of the Italian banking industry. Most standard performance indicators are now broadly in line with those of other large European countries. Competition in the Italian banking sector has not yet been fully reflected in the pricing and quality of core services.
