ROME (Reuters) - Italian EU-harmonised consumer prices (HICP) rose a preliminary 0.6% month-on-month in November, with annual inflation slowing marginally to 12.5% from 12.6% in October but exceeding expectations, data showed on Wednesday.

The median forecast in a Reuters survey of 14 analysts had pointed to a 12.0% year-on-year rise.

Official statistics agency ISTAT also reported that the main domestic price index (NIC), was up 0.5% on the month, posting an 11.8% annual figure which was the same as October's rate.
