Reali ferriere ed Officine di Mongiana or Villaggio Siderurgico di Mongiana[1] (in English: Mongiana Royal Iron Foundry and Works or The Iron & Steel town of Mangiano) was an iron and steel foundry in the small town of Mongiana, in Calabria (Italy). It was founded in 1770–71 by the Bourbons of Naples and closed in 1881, 20 years after the Kingdom of Italy was established. In 1860 the foundry employed up to 1600 workers.


The architect who build the first complex was the neapolitan Mario Gioffredo at 1771 and the first director was G.F. Conty.
