The Italian Economy minister Mr. Giulio Tremonti announced this afternoon that Italian govern will ask to European Central Bank a request to introduce 1 €uro notes in spite of the today used coins.
The main reason comes from the fact that when there was the old Italian Lira people used mainly notes (the smallest notes was ITL 1.000, about €0,50) so today there is a big problem for people to give a right value when they go to shop. In this situation the inflation will grow as fast as then predicted.
He also said there is not reason we don't have 1 €uro notes when US Dollar (the main competitor for Euro) has 1 Dollar notes.
I talked before with some friends and relatives about it and everyone seem very enthusiastic if they introduce 1 €uro notes.
