Report to Parliament and to the Government for 2005

The report is divided into six chapters: the first five cover the performance of the functions entrusted to the Bank of Italy as part of the European System of Central Banks and by Italian law; the sixth describes the Bank’s activity in the fields of economic research, international cooperation and statistics.

The appendix contains information on the organizational arrangements of the Bank.
