Cashback remains. The Senate rejected the Brothers of Italy motion to stop the measure, aimed at encouraging the use of digital payments. There were 114 senators against the request of Giorgia Meloni’s party, in favor of 20. The Lega, Forza Italia and Italia Viva abstained.

“There are 23 billions that are estimated in terms of higher consumption in the two-year period, based on the numbers produced since cashback has existed. Nine, on the other hand, the billions of higher revenues between now and 2025. It is a self-financing measure” a post by the deputy minister to Mef Laura Castelli. “This is a measure to support consumption. If you know you can recover a part of what you spend, you are more inclined to buy”. Furthermore, Cashback “is radically changing the habits of Italians, in fact digital payments of small amounts (ie under 10 euros) have increased by 34% and those made at local stores, such as food, by 56%, by clearing customs so the electronic money from its use only towards the large distribution or e-commerce “.

The other reason, perhaps even wider, he stresses, “concerns the access of Italians to the digital world, that simplification of the country necessary to improve people’s lives. Joining the Cashback has pushed 8 million citizens (in just three months ) to activate their ‘Spid’ digital identity, which will increasingly represent the key to access all the services of the PA and communicate with it, making it easy to approach the services of Agenzia dell’Entrate, INPS, PagoPa and other entities public in general “.
