Italy hopes other EU countries will reopen their borders to Italian citizens on June 15, Foreign Minister Luigi Di Maio, said on Saturday as coronavirus travel restrictions across Europe are gradually eased.
But most European countries are still largely off-limits for Italian nationals.
Di Maio said Germany and Switzerland have also indicated that they could open their borders to Italians from that date.
He said he hoped border openings would apply to people from all parts of Italy, including those areas worst-affected by the novel coronavirus outbreak.
Italy has so far reported about 234,500 coronavirus cases and 33,770 deaths.
Slovenia, which last month declared an end to its coronavirus epidemic, has reported 1,479 coronavirus cases and 109 deaths.
In recent weeks, it has allowed the entry of people from neighbouring Croatia, Hungary and Austria.
