Italy’s economy will keep recovering from recession slowly but surely and avoid a renewed slump this year and next, a Bloomberg survey of analysts showed.

The euro region’s third-biggest economy will extend the expansion that started last year, said 19 of 25 respondents in the poll published Tuesday. Still, the pace of growth in 2016 and 2017 will be slower than previously anticipated, according to the median forecast of economists, strategists and portfolio managers.
