Testa Grigia (Italian, lit. "grey head") (3,479 m) is a rocky prominence above the Theodul Pass, located on the border between Italy (Aosta Valley) and Switzerland (Valais).

The summit can be reached from Breuil-Cervinia and is the culminating point of the Italian part of the international ski area with Zermatt. A connection with the Klein Matterhorn (3,889 m) is planned for 2016.[2]
