Mugello is a landscape north of Florencemarker in northern Italymarker. It is separated by the Santernomarker river valley by the Futa Passmarker.

In ancient times it was on the border between the area settled by the Ligurians (the Magelli tribe, whence the name), the Etruscanmarker and the Gauls. The Roman colonization left sparse traces, as the Mugello was mostly an agricultural area. In the Middle Ages it was home to numerous castles, and was later acquired by the Republic of Florence. Several families of the city built patrician villas there, like those of the Medici in Cafaggiolomarker and the Trebbiomarker. A more recent event was the creation of an artificial Lake of Bilancino on the Sieve marker river.

The area gives its name to the Mugello Circuitmarker ( ), a race track that hosts an annual Moto GP event.
