Italy looks set this year to join the ranks of securitizing nations in the European Community, as analysts expect the number of Italian deals completed this year to more than triple last year's total.

Up to 30 Italian securitizations are expected this year, totaling in euros from e8 billion to e12 billion ($7.6 billion to $11.5 billion). That will be a far leap from last years' total of seven deals, which came to e6.5 billion ($6.2 billion).
