Italy and the EIB

The EIB has worked with Italy since 1959. We financed high-speed rail links, schools and universities and various urban renewal projects. We made financing available to thousands of small businesses, which are the backbone of the economy. We also invested in medical research for people with diseases of the central nervous system and supported a network of charging stations for electric cars.
