Becca di Luseney (French: Pic de Luseney) (3,502m) is a mountain of the Pennine Alps in Aosta Valley, northwest Italy. It has a pyramidal look on all four sides, and its north face is covered with a glacier. A huge rockfall from its southwest face came down in 1952, completely destroying the village of Chamen and other settlements in the Valpelline valley. The mountain was first climbed in 1866.[2]
