"The government trusts that what it has explained is sufficient to clear up the setup of its budget and that the (fiscal) law will not put at risk the financial stability of Italy or other European Union state members", he added.

"The Government is confident that the budget manoeuvre will not expose to risk the financial stability to the other member countries of the European Union", Tria said and added the budget was "a hard but necessary decision in the light of the persistent delay in recovering to pre-crisis GDP levels and the dramatic economic conditions in which the most disadvantaged sections of the population are situated".

"They're not attacking a government but a people". In theory that discipline should matter to an Italian government.

Italy could have faced sanctions from the bloc but instead has been told that it must draw up a new budget within three weeks, according to Italian news agency AGI.

"No one will take one euro from this budget", he said.

Italian Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte told journalists on Monday that the budget is created to spur growth and avoid a recession.

Under EU rules, the next step facing Rome is an "excessive deficit procedure" to be opened by Brussels if Italy continues to defy the EU. Italy has the highest debt ratio in the euro area after Greece, and its plans have unsettled investors, sending its bond yields to a five-year high last week. "And excessive debt makes your economy more vulnerable to future crisis", said Dombrovskis.
