Despite the possibility of a real rationing of raw materials and products useful for the well-being and daily life of our country rather distantPresident Mario Draghi spoke about the importance of be ready cope with such a scenario.

In fact, the Prime Minister spoke at a press conference about those who will be medium and long term effects for our country because of the conflict in Ukraine. Among the certainties, in fact, there is a continuous lack of raw material and the excessive energy cost. To date, there is no danger, but it is the Prime Minister himself who speaks of “rationing logic” in case the situation escalates.
