Colloredo di Monte Albano (Friulian: Colorêt di Montalban) is a comune (municipality) in the Italian region Friuli-Venezia Giulia, located about 80 kilometres (50 mi) northwest of Trieste and about 14 kilometres (9 mi) northwest of Udine.
The 19th century writer Ippolito Nievo lived and wrote his novels in the castle of Colloredo (still now property of the Nievo counts).
Starting from the 11th century, it was a fief of the Viscounts of Mels, who had received it from the Counts of Tyrol.
In 1420, together will all Friuli, the hamlet was acquired by the Republic of Venice.
In 1976 the town was severely damaged by the Friuli earthquake.
