The business sector of Haiti, was controlled in the mid-19th century by German and Italian immigrants.[1]

In 1908 there were 160 Italians resident in Haiti, according to the Italian consul De Matteis, of whom 128 lived in the capital Port-au-Prince [2]

Haitians of Italian descent and their mixed-race descendants today are actually numbered to be around 97,803.

During the 2010 earthquake in Port-au-Prince, the first Italian recorded dead was 70-year-old Gigliola Martino, who was born in Haiti to Italian parents who emigrated to the country in the early 20th century.[3]
