Iranian–Italian relations refers to the diplomatic relations between Iran and the Italian Republic.
Iranian Revolution and Iran–Iraq War
Bilateral relations were strategically damaged in the 1980s when Iran distanced itself from most, if not all Western countries following the Islamic Revolution, and when Italy supplied Iran's enemy with economic and naval assistance throughout the Iran–Iraq War. Relations were normalized following the conflict's end in 1988.
Modern era and current relations
Iran-Italy trade stood at $US 2.7 Billion in 2001  and 3.852 Billion Euros in 2003. In 2005, Italy was the third largest trading partner of Iran with 7.5% of all exports to Iran. Italy was the top trading partner of Iran in the European Union in early 2006. Commercial exchanges hit 6 billion euros in 2008.
In recent years, some soccer players from Iran's Team melli have been absorbed by Italian Serie A clubs. Rahman Rezai (currently of A.S. Livorno Calcio) and Ali Samereh (formerly of Perugia Calcio) are some notable examples.
