Scaletta Zanclea is a comune (municipality) in the Metropolitan City of Messina in the Italian region Sicily, located about 180 kilometres (110 mi) east of Palermo and about 15 kilometres (9 mi) southwest of Messina.

The comune suffered heavily in the mudslides which devastated the area in 2009.[2]
