When the Saracens destroyed the ancient Capua in 841, some of their inhabitants moved to the Palmobara hill (the modern Bellon's frazione of Triflisco) founding the town of Sicopoli. This was also destroyed by the Saracens in 856. Bellona continued to be a frazione of Capua until the Nepoleonic Age (1806).
On 7 October 1943 German soldiers shot 54 of Bellona's citizens. Italian President Oscar Luigi Scalfaro awarded the town the Golden Medal of Military Valour to reward the town's contribution to the Resistance in World War II.
