Witnesses said that the girl and her cousin, aged 10 and 11, were sucked into a whirlpool as they played together by the Po in a rural area about 80 km southeast of Milan.
A relative's efforts to pull them out was fruitless, and emergency services called.
The body of one of the girls was found at a little before 20:00 on Sunday evening.
Firemen and a diving unit are conducting the ongoing search for the other.
