Foglizzo is a comune (municipality) in the Metropolitan City of Turin in the Italian region Piedmont, located about 25 kilometres (16 mi) northeast of Turin. It is part of the Canavese historical region.
Foglizzo borders the following municipalities: San Giorgio Canavese, San Giusto Canavese, Caluso, Bosconero, San Benigno Canavese, and Montanaro.
