to define potentialities and limitations in the use of GPM-DPR products as reference for the validation of the H SAF precipitation products over the MSG full disk. Italy is an ideal test bed for complex terrain in a Mediterranean climatic regime, as it consists of a mixture of mountainous terrain (Alps, Apennines) and flatter/coastal areas. The country is well instrumented by a network of 22 weather radars ( Vulpiani et al. 2014 ; Rinollo et al. 2013 ), as well as a network of around 3000 rain
