Finale Emilia (Finalese: Al Finàl; Modenese: Al Finèl) is a comune (municipality) in the Province of Modena, in the Italian region Emilia-Romagna, located about 35 kilometres (22 mi) north of Bologna and about 35 kilometres (22 mi) northeast of Modena.

Finale was struck by an earthquake on 20 May 2012, which destroyed or damaged several historical structures, such as the Torre dei Modenesi (a clock tower), and most of both the local castle and cathedral.
