LONDON, May 23 (Reuters) - Italian banks index has slipped 20% from mid-April peak, confirming that the battered sector is in bear market, amid renewed worries about a showdown between Rome and Brussels over the euro-zone's No. 3 economy's budget.

The sharp slide over the last few weeks has come even as regulatory data showed funds have reduced their bearish bets on the battered sector in recent months.
