This is a discography of vinyl compilation albums (LPs) that have been released in Italy by Pink Floyd.

Any comments, corrections or additions to this discography are appreciated.

Matrix dates: Italian records have dates etched in the runoff groove of the vinyl along with the matrix numbers. These dates, which often vary from side to side, are stamped in the vinyl in European date format, such as 12-9-73 (indicating September 12, 1973), and are often followed by a Roman numeral. Known matrix dates for each side of an LP, and Roman numerals, are indicated in this discography.
