Bagnone is a comune (municipality) in the Province of Massa and Carrara in the Italian region Tuscany, located about 120 kilometres (75 mi) northwest of Florence and about 35 kilometres (22 mi) northwest of Massa in the Lunigiana, facing the Monte Sillara, which has a peak elevation of 1,861 metres (6,106 ft). The communal territory is crossed by the Bagnone torrent, a left affluence of the Magra River.

Sights include the castle, the churches of San Niccolò (rebuilt in the 18th century, including a 15th-century Madonna del Pianto from the medieval edifice) and San Leonardo (1785) and the oratory of San Terenzio (housing 17th-century paintings).

On 22 August 2009, Ugo Verni, a player from Bagnone won an estimated 146.9 million (£128 million / US$211 million) in Italy's SuperEnalotto.[2] This is thought to be Europe's biggest ever lottery win, and is one of the biggest wins ever anywhere.[2]
