Colascione (or Calascione, Italian: [kɔlaˈʃɔ̃], French: Colachon [kɔlaˈʃɔ̃]) is a plucked string instrument with lute-like resonant body and a very long neck. It was mainly used in southern Italy. It has two (or three) strings, tuned in fifth interval.

In the literature of coascione, it is often confused with calichon, a bass version of the Mandora.
