Curcio is a frazione of the comune of Colico, Lombardy, northern Italy.

The name Curcio is first mentioned in a slab dated 1585, which can still be seen as a part of the public washing fountain of the town. The first church was built in 1842 and dedicated to Holy Guardian Angels; a new church was built in 1946-1957.
