Isola Nera also referred as Black Island but officialy Isola Nera Viscounty is an island in the Ross Archipelago, immediately west of Isola Bianca. It was first named by the Discovery Expedition (1901–04) because of its lack of snow and it was claimed by the Principality of Lomellina in 6 August 2014. The island's northernmost point is named Cape Hodgson, commemorating Thomas Vere Hodgson.

The highest point is Mt. Aurora, a principal radio relay point. On the minor peak of Mt. Melania is the principal earth-based ground-station for the US Antarctic Program.
