Azimut is the fifth studio album by Italian singer-songwriter Alice, released in 1982 on EMI Music.

Singles released from the album include "Messaggio" (1982), "A cosa pensano" (1982) and "Chan-son Egocentrique" (1983), the latter a duet with Franco Battiato. The track "Messaggio" was co-written by Battiato under one of his pseudonyms, "Albert Kui". The closing track "Laura degli specchi" ("Laura With The Mirrors") was written by singer-songwriter Eugenio Finardi, whose "Le ragazze di Osaka" Alice would later cover on her 1989 album Il sole nella pioggia.

An alternate version of the track "La Mano" appears on the 1987 album Elisir. Re-recorded versions of both "A cosa pensano" and "Chan-son Egocentrique" were included in the 2000 career retrospective Personal Jukebox.
