Becca di Nona is one of the two mountains closest to the city of Aosta, Italy. The other is Mount Emilius. Becca di Nona takes its name from the latin "nona hora" that indicates midday, because of its southern position with respect to Aosta. There is a statue of the Holy Virgin on the top, transported by mule in 1892.
The skyrace Aosta - Becca di Nona takes place every year, starting from the central place of Aosta and reaching the top of the peak.
