Arabs in Italy (Italian: Arabi in Italia, Arabic: عرب إيطاليا‎) are mostly expatriates from a range of Arab countries, particularly Egypt, Morocco, Tunisia, Lebanon, Syria, Libya, Somalia, Eritrea the Palestinian Territories, and Iraq; and also small groups from Jordan, Algeria and Sudan. As a result of mixed marriages and naturalization, the category includes many Italian nationals and second-generation children of expatriates.
