Mondragone is a comune or municipality in the Province of Caserta in the Italian region of Campania. It is located about 45 kilometres (28 mi) northwest of Naples and about 40 kilometres (25 mi) west of Caserta.


The first historical population of the area was the Aurunci. In 375, during the late Roman Empire, a village known as Petrinum was founded after an earthquake had destroyed the nearby town of Sinuessa. In the Middle Ages, it was occupied by the Normans who built (or re-built) an important castle here.
