Piagiolino Airfield is an abandoned World War II military airfield in Italy, which was located about 1km southwest of Monterado (Provincia di Ancona,The Marches); 200km north of Rome. It was a temporary all-weather airfield used by the 52d Fighter Group between 21 Apr and 8 Jul 1945.

Today, the land on which the airfield existed can be seen by the scarring on the earth evident in aerial photography.
