The Litana Silva was a forest located in Gallia Cispadana in the territory of the Boii. It was the site of the defeat of the Roman consul L. Postumius Albinus in 216 BC. Its precise location is uncertain, but it probably lay somewhere in the flat land south of the Po river in Italy.

According to Smith, the forest was likely located between Bononia and Placentia, although its precise position cannot be determined today. Peyre places it between Parma and Reggio.
