Ribolla is a village in southern Tuscany, a frazione of the comune of Roccastrada, in the province of Grosseto. At the time of the 2001 census its population amounted to 2115.[1]

In 1954, a mine exploded killing forty-three workers. The incident was reported by Luciano Bianciardi and Carlo Cassola in the essay I minatori della Maremma (The miners of Maremma), and has been a source of inspiration for the novel La vita agra and for the film of the same name directed by Carlo Lizzani.
