The Somali and Italian governments have a long relationship. Relations between the modern-day territories of Somalia and Italy stretch back to antiquity. During the Roman empire centuries the Periplus of the Erythraean Sea, among other documents, reports early commercial exchanges between traders inhabiting city-states on the northern Somali littoral with Roman merchants. Numerous artefacts dating from this period have been uncovered in Somalia, such as at the Damo site in the Puntland region. Written by Hassan Istiila
