Italy, how much is qualification for Euro 2024 worth: the European Championship prize money

How much is the Euro 2024 prize pool? In addition to the sporting aspect, there is also the economic one regarding Italy's participation in the next European championships, with the Azzurri called to face the last two matches of the qualifying group.
With England having already secured the pass for Euro 2024, for second place which will guarantee direct qualification – third place will instead send them to the play-offs where we don't have good memories – Italy and Ukraine are in contention.
Italy is currently in third place, three points behind Ukraine, who however have one game more than us as well as a worse goal difference: the Azzurri are consequently masters of their own destiny, with two victories that would send us straight to Germany, To tell the truth, if Italy were to beat North Macedonia, our true bête noire, at the Olimpico in the last match against Ukraine, even a draw could be enough to be certain of second place.
However, the calculations regarding the prize money for Euro 2024 are very different, with the whole country which could benefit in terms of GDP from Italy's qualification for the final phase of the European football championship.
