The 100 Finest Mountains in Italy.

This list ranks 100 mountains in Italy according to prominence (primary factor).
We list the top 100, since there are 96 mountains with prominence exceeding 1000 meter.

This data has been derived from work by Eberhard Jurgalski, Jonathan de Ferranti and several other contributors.
See this page for more much more comprehensive lists of world wide prominence.

Confirmed or suspected corrections are most welcome by email to:

I appreciate that use of these data is acknowledged including a link to my main mountain page.

Italy has 21 Ultra prominent mountains, including the Sardinia and Sicily HPs and one peak shared with Switzerland.
There are 4 peaks shared with neighbor countries among the top 50.
The top 57 peaks on this list contains 50 peaks that are completely inside Italy, excluding also island peaks.
Among the 100 finest, there are 9 peaks shared with other countries and 7 peaks that are located on the two big islands Sicily and Sardinia.

Two stars behind the rank means that I have climbed it (26/50), (28/100).
