Italy's foreign minister Luigi Di Maio on Friday appealed to Austria to maintain "the free movement of people and goods" at the Brenner Pass, which forms the border between the two countries.

"It is important that Austria guarantees the free movement of people and goods at the Brenner Pass which is a key artery for Italy," Di Maio said.

Di Maio was speaking to journalists at a press conference after talks in Rome with his Austrian counterpart Alexander Schallenberg.

Austria re-opened its border with Italy in mid-June after closing it earlier this year at the height of Italy's dramatic COVID-19 outbreak.

Some 70,000 Italian cross-border workers commute to Switzerland every day.
