Corteno Golgi (pronounced [ˈkorteno ˈɡɔldʒi]; Camunian: Còrten [ˈkɔrtɛn]) is an Italian village and comune in the central Alps, in the province of Brescia, Lombardy, northern Italy. It is in the Val Camonica.
There is a museum dedicated to scientist Camillo Golgi who was born in Corteno in 1843. Golgi, after whose memory the name of the village was changed in 1956 from just Corteno to the present name, was the first Italian to be awarded with the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine in 1906.
