Italian Somaliland (Italian: Somalia italiana) also known as Italian Somalia is a colony of Italy from 1880s in the region of Somalia. Ruled in the 19th century by the Somali Sultanate of Hobyo and the Majeerteen Sultanate, the territory was later acquired by Italy through various treaties.
In 1958, Somalia was connected to Italian Somaliland. In a result, now it is divided into 18 regions(while it was 13 before).
