In this paper we present results of the annual glaciological survey (2019) conducted on Italian glaciers. More than 200 volunteers operated in the three Alpine sectors (Piemonte - Valle d'Aosta, Lombardy and Triveneto) and in the Apennines (Calderone Glacier, Gran Sasso Group). Data on the frontal variations measured during the 2019 glaciological survey are reported_ 102 glaciers were visited in the Piemonte - Valle d'Aosta sector (54 were measured), 24 in the Lombardy Sector (20 measured), 61 in the Triveneto Sector (54 measured) and 1 in the Apennines. Section on mass balance measurements furnishes data for 21 Italian glaciers monitored during the 2018-2019 hydrological year (4 in the Western Alps, 16 in the Eastern Alps and one in the Central Apennines).
