Chile–Italy relations are the bilateral relations between Chile and Italy. The two countries established diplomatic relations in 1864 after Chilean President José Joaquín Pérez recognized the new Italian state.[1] Chile broke relations with Italy (as well as Germany and Japan) on January 20, 1943 but they were reestablished following the end of World War II.[2]

Chile currently has an embassy in Rome and a general consulate in Milan.[3] In late 2010 a bomb exploded at the Chilean embassy, wounding the employee who opened the package in which the bomb was hidden.[4] An employee of the Swiss embassy in Rome was wounded by a similar letter bomb on the same day.[4] The Informal Anarchist Federation claimed responsibility for both attacks.[4]

Italy has an embassy in Santiago.[5]

Both countries are full members of the Latin Union.[6] There are tens of thousands of people of Italian descent living in Chile, also known as Italian Chileans, and one recent study estimated their number at 150,000 including 35,000 Italian citizens.[7]
