Maccagno is a comune (municipality) of 2,000 inhabitants located in the province of Varese in the Italian region Lombardy, located in the Val Veddasca about 70 km northwest of Milan and about 25 km northwest of Varese.


In 1622 Giacomo III Mandelli - count of Maccagno - got from the emperor Ferdinand II of Habsburg the privilege to mint coins in its fief.


Maccagno is located by the lake shore of the Lake Maggiore, on the east side. Not far from the town center there is a cliff that is used for rock climbing activities. The cliff is called "Il Cinzanino" and it is managed by the Club Alpino Italiano, departement of Luino.
