Carapelle Calvisio is a comune and town in the province of L'Aquila in the Abruzzo region of central Italy. It is located in the natural park known as the "Gran Sasso e Monti della Laga National Park" at 900 metres (3,000 ft) above sea level. It is mostly known as being one of the smallest non-alpine comunes in Italy, with 85 inhabitants as of 31 December 2013. It is located directly some kilometers from the historical castle Rocca Calascio.

Carapelle Calvisio's location (separated by a mountain from L'Aquila area) preserved it from serious damage in the earthquake of L'Aquila on 6 April 2009.
