The 1990 Italian Grand Prix was a Formula One motor race held on 9 September 1990 at Monza. It was the twelfth race of the 1990 Formula One season. The race was the 60th Italian Grand Prix and the 55th to be held at Monza.

Brazilian driver Ayrton Senna in a McLaren MP4/5B took pole position and then led every lap, winning the race by six seconds over his title rival reigning world champion, French driver Alain Prost driving a Ferrari 641. Senna also set the fastest lap of the race, scoring a Grand Slam. With Senna's Austrian team mate Gerhard Berger third, the podium was identical to that at the previous round.

Near the end of the first lap, Derek Warwick crashed his Lotus 102 at the Parabolica, hitting the guard rail at an estimated 140 mph. The race was stopped on the second lap and restarted over the original distance. Warwick was unhurt, and took the restart in the spare car with the rest of the field.

Senna's victory over Prost saw the championship
