Fiumelatte is a river in northern Italy. It flows from a cavity in the Grigna into Lake Como, just south of Varenna, it has an approximate length of 250 m . The name Fiumelatte, composed from fiume and latte , is due to the milky white color of its water.
One of the river's peculiarities is its annual intermittency: it usually dries in the middle of October to reappear in the second half of March; therefore it has been given the nickname Fiume delle due Madonne , alluding to the festivities of Annunciation and Madonna del Rosario . This phenomenon could imply that the river is the vent of an unexplored underground cavity in the Grigna, which gets periodically filled.
