Poggio Colla is an Etruscan archaeological site located near the town of Vicchio in Tuscany, Italy.
Poggio Colla was inhabited by the early 7th century BCE. The settlement was "violently" destroyed in the late 3rd century BCE and rebuilt in the Hellenistic period.
The first excavations of Poggio Colla were directed by Francesco Nicosia from 1968 to 1972. Since 1995, the site has been excavated annually by the Mugello Valley Archaeological Project (MVAP) under the direction of Gregory Warden and Michael Thomas; MVAP is sponsored by Southern Methodist University and the University of Pennsylvania. Excavations at the site have revealed fortifications, a possible temple, and a necropolis.
