The Board of Directors of Telecom Italia, meeting today in Milan under the chairmanship of Roberto Colaninno, has decided to call an Extraordinary Shareholders´ Meeting on April 18, 2001 to resolve upon the redenomination of the company´s share capital into Euro and the conversion of the saving shares of Telecom Italia into ordinary shares, so as to carry out the first part of the project presented on February 5.

The Extraordinary Shareholders´ Meeting has been called for a later date than initially foreseen so as to extend the original timetable to allow for a possible extension of the transaction to the US market and to meet the related requirements posed by the Securities and Exchange Commission.

Regarding the rest of the proposal, the Board did not deem it appropriate under current conditions to modify the other terms of the project.
