Cogli la prima mela is an album of the Italian singer-songwriter Angelo Branduardi. It was released in 1979 by Polydor.

The title track is a re-imagining of a medieval Hungarian melody, entitled "U naseho Barty". Also the music of "Donna ti voglio cantare" is based on a medieval melody by Pierre Attaingnant, entitled "Tourdion", which Branduardi himself recorded for his later album Futuro antico II.

The lyrics to "La raccolta" ("The harvesting") are taken from a poem by Sappho, while the music is from the Romanian folk ballad "M-am suit in dealul clujului". Finally, the song "Ninna nanna" is the Italian version of "Mary Hamilton", an English traditional song also recorded by Joan Baez.
