Collegno is a comune (municipality) in the Province of Turin in the Italian region Piedmont, located about 9 kilometres (6 miles) west of Turin.

It occupies an alluvial plain at the end of the Val di Susa, between Rivoli and Turin, at the foot of Monte Musinè. The terminal course of the Dora Riparia flows in its territory.

History[edit]

Collegno originated as a Roman mansio 8 kilometres (5 mi) from Turin, known as Quintum Collegium (hence the modern name). Ancient findings from the area are now in the Museum of Antiquities in Turin.
