Italy completed at the 2009 World Championships in Athletics, held from August 15 to August 23. On August 3, the Italian national athletics federation (FIDAL) revealed the final team composed of 40 athletes (24 men and 16 women),[1] but on 8 August, after a last test competition in Grosseto, Andrew Howe, in accordance with FIDAL, decided not to compete in Berlin. Just before publishing the team, Faloci, a discus thrower, also decided not to compete.

Italy did not win a single medal in the championships, the first time ever in the history of the World Athletics Championships that Italy have failed to win a medal, the first time since Melbourne 1956 in any major championships (World, Olympics or European).
