The city is home to several automobile plants (former Alfa Romeo Alfasud plant, now owned by Fiat) and the aeronautic manufacturing firm Alenia Aeronautica.[2] It is also home to Elasis, Fiat's research center in southern Italy.


During World War II, Pomigliano was the location of a large military airfield and base, and was attacked on several occasions by the United States Army Air Forces. The airfield was later used by the RAF and the USAAF Twelfth Air Force during the Italian campaign and known as RAF Pomigliano and Pomigliano Airfield.
