Monte Cocuzzo seen from the countryside of Belmonte Calabro
|Elevation||1,541 m (5,056 ft)|
|Parent range||Catena Costiera, Calabrian Apennines|
The name derives from the Latin Cacutium, in turn from the Greek κακός κύτος, meaning "bad stone" or "bad hole", referring to its alleged volcanic origin (shown also by its conical shape). Geologically, however, Monte Cocuzzo consists of sedimentary strata, mostly dolomite.
