A comune (Italian pronunciation: [koˈmuːne]; plural: comuni [koˈmuːni]) is an administrative division of Italy, roughly equivalent to a township or municipality. It is the third-level administrative division of Italy, after regions (regioni) and provinces (province). The comune can also have the title of città ('city').

Formed praeter legem according to the principles consolidated in medieval municipalities, the comune is provided for by art. 114 of the Constitution of Italy. It can be divided into frazioni, which in turn may have limited power due to special elective assemblies.
In the autonomous region of the Aosta Valley, a comune is officially called a commune in French and Franço-Provecencal.
