Foligno is an important rail center and one of the more 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.
