Salasco is a comune (municipality) in the Province of Vercelli in the Italian region Piedmont, located about 50 km northeast of Turin and about 12 km west of Vercelli. As of 31 December 2004, it had a population of 240 and an area of 12.1 km².[1]

The municipality of Salasco contains the frazione (subdivision, mainly a village or a hamlet) Selve, which is a huge, typical farmstead of Vercelli's countryside, the most important rice-growing district in Italy.

Salasco borders the following municipalities: Crova, Lignana, Sali Vercellese, San Germano Vercellese, and Vercelli.

Selve, together with the nearby Tenuta Veneria (comune of Lignana), was a filming location for Bitter Rice, a 1949 movie starring Silvana Mangano and Vittorio Gassman.
