The Albano is a stream (or "torrente") of Lombardy, Italy which flows through the province of Como. It rises from the Bocchetta di Sommafiume, in the commune of Germasino and runs eastwards through the Albano valley ententering Lake Como at Dongo. Between the communes of Germasino and Dongo Albano passes through Garzeno.

The most common fish are brown trout (both "Salmo trutta" morpha "fario" and "S. trutta" morpha "lacustris"), rainbow trout, and chub [] . The fauna supported by the stream also include amphibians such as the fire salamander, and insects such as stream mayflies.
