FIGC president Giancarlo Abete has dismissed calls from politicians for financial cuts to football.
Prominent government minister Roberto Calderoni has called for FIGC to reduce - or even abolish - bonuses for Italy's national team players.
"It's more of a political debate than a sporting one in a narrow sense," Abete said. "We are in line with the politics of managing the costs of CONI and on this line we want to go forward.
"The eventual bonuses are derived from resources obtained from FIFA and should not be any burden on the budget of the state.
"The Federation is very careful in its management of the federal budget."
