Final Pia or Finale Pia is one of three urban forming the Ligurian town of Finale Ligure, near Savona, northern Italy. An independent municipality until 1927, it was later merged with Finale Marina and Finalborgo to form the modern town of Finale Ligure. The village is situated along the Via Aurelia, however, most of the buildings face the banks of the river Sciusa, especially after the big residential development in the postwar period, expansion that has effectively united the center of the inner Finale Pia Calvisio frazione, at about one kilometer from the coast.
