Zoppola is a comune (municipality) in the Province of Pordenone in the Italian region Friuli-Venezia Giulia, located about 90 kilometres (56 miles) northwest of Trieste and about 9 kilometres (6 miles) east of Pordenone.

The Italian poet Pier Paolo Pasolini wrote a poem called Le gioie di Orcenico ("The joys of Orcenico"), since he lived in Casarsa della Delizia, not far from Zoppola's frazione (hamlet) of Orcenico from 1943 to 1949.
