ROME (Reuters) - Italian Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte said on Tuesday he was surprised by the European Commission's decision to open an investigation into Fincantieri's <FCT.MI> planned acquisition of French counterpart Chantiers de l'Atlantique.

The European Antitrust authority said in a statement that France and Germany had asked it to investigate the tie-up between the two shipbuilders to see whether the transaction could significantly harm competition.
