Morigerati (Cilentan: Murgirati) is a town and comune in the province of Salerno in the Campania region of south-western Italy.

The municipality, located in southern Cilento and part of its national park, is crossed by the Bussento river. It borders with Casaletto Spartano, Caselle in Pittari, Santa Marina, Torre Orsaia and Tortorella.[5] Its only hamlet (frazione) is the village of Sicilì, that has a population of 364.[6]
