Foligno (pronounced Foleenio) is a city in central Umbria in Italy.
Foligno is an important rail center and one of the most industrialized towns of Umbria. It was subjected to severe Allied bombing in World War II, which destroyed many buildings and explains its relatively modern appearance. It is one of the very few Umbrian cities that is not a hill town, being built on a plain first drained during Roman times.
The First Edition of Dante’s Divine Comedy, which was also the first printed book in Italian, was printed in Foligno in 1472.
