Italy – United States relations are bilateral relations between Italymarker and the United Statesmarker. The United Statesmarker has had diplomatic representation in the nation of Italymarker and its predecessor nation, the Kingdom of Sardinia, since 1840, with a break in relations from 1941 to 1944, while Italy and the United States were at war.

History

The United States currently enjoys warm and friendly relations with Italy. Italy is a leading partner in the war against terrorism. The two are NATOmarker allies and cooperate in the United Nations, in various regional organizations, and bilaterally for peace, prosperity, and security. Italy has worked closely with the United States and others on such issues as NATO and UN operations as well as with assistance to Russiamarker and the New Independent States; Lebanonmarker; the Middle East peace process; multilateral talks; Somaliamarker and Mozambiquemarker peacekeeping; and combating drug trafficking, trafficking in women and children, and terrorism.

Under longstanding bilateral agreements flowing from NATO membership, Italy hosts important U.S. military forces at Vicenzamarker and Livornomarker (army); Avianomarker (air force); and Sigonellamarker, Gaetamarker, and Naplesmarker--home port for the U.S. Navy Sixth Fleet. The United States has about 13,000 military personnel stationed in Italy. Italy hosts the NATO Defence College in Romemarker.

Italy remains a strong and active transatlantic partner which, along with the United States, has sought to foster democratic ideals and international cooperation in areas of strife and civil conflict. Toward this end, the Italian Government has cooperated with the United States in the formulation of defense, security, and peacekeeping policies.
