Bergamasco is a comune (municipality) in the Province of Alessandria in the Italian region Piedmont, located about 70 kilometres (43 mi) southeast of Turin and about 15 kilometres (9 mi) southwest of Alessandria. As of 31 December 2004, it had a population of 747 and an area of 13.3 square kilometres (5.1 sq mi).[3]

It is located between the hills of Montferrat and the Po Valley. This village is washed by the river Belbo.

From 1000 to 1514, Bergamasco was owned by the Marchesi of Incisa Scapaccino. Then William IX Palaiologos, the marchese of Montferrat, caught and destroyed it. So it followed Montferrat's destiny.

Bergamasco borders the following municipalities: Bruno, Carentino, Castelnuovo Belbo, Incisa Scapaccino, and Oviglio.
