Massa d'Albe is a comune and town in the province of L'Aquila in the Abruzzo region of central Italy. It is part of the Marsica.

The town was founded in the 14th century by the inhabitants of the ancient Alba Fucens, whose remains are in the area. The current comune was formed after 1915 by the union of two former comuni, Masa and Corona, destroyed by an earthquake.
