Time in Italy
The exact time in Italy is based on the time zones for Italy. We will always try to give you the exact time for Italy. There might be slight differences, since the time zones for Italy might change due to daylight savings time (DST).
Time changes in Italy are usually done to adapt citizen and tourist activity to the solar cycle. This allows for greater usage of daylight, reducing dependency on electricity. That is why the time is sent ahead one hour in the spring for Italy, and falls back one hour in the fall for Italy. Adding an extra hour of daylight helps Italy to improve its tourism and depend less on Italy's electricity supplies.
