This chapter presents and offers analysis of the maritime historiography of Italy. It is divided into two parts, the first concerning the Italian States before Unification, and the second concerning post-Unification Italy. Specific topics discussed include ports, trade, and navigation; ships, shipbuilding, and transports; maritime protectionism; port-policies; shipping-related institutions; sailors, fishermen, and yachtsmen; and naval history. The conclusion claims that research into Italian maritime history contains several gaps, and that the focus of maritime studies is often local rather than national or international, but that significant progress is currently underway within the field.

Keywords:   Maritime Italy, Italian Port Infrastructures, Italian Sailors, Italian Trade Industry, Italian Shipbuilding
