Rome, September 12 - The interest rate on Italian
bonds rose at two separate auctions on Thursday, with the rate
on the three-year BTP reaching its highest level since October
last year.
The Treasury sold all four-billion euros' worth of the
three-year bonds it put up for sale, but it had to give an
average interest rate of 2.72%, up from 2.33% at an auction in
July.
The rate also climbed at an auction of 15-year BTPs, with
1.5 billion euros' worth going at an average rate of 4.88%, up
from 4.67% at a sale in June.
The Treasury also sold two billion euros worth of CCT
bonds, which are index-linked to the eurozone's inflation rate.
Italy's borrowing costs have been rising amid fears Premier
Enrico Letta's fragile grand-coalition government may collapse
in the fallout of last month's decision by the supreme court to
uphold a tax-fraud conviction against centre-right leader Silvio
Berlusconi.
