It is home to ironworks, foundries, locomotive works (once owned by Fiat Ferroviaria, now by Alstom) and silk manufactures, as well as sugar factories, printing works and cocoon-raising establishments.
Savigliano retains some traces of its ancient walls, demolished in 1707, and has a collegiate church (S. Andrea, in its present form comparatively modern), and a triumphal arch erected in honour of the marriage of Charles Emmanuel I with Infanta Catherine of Austrian Spain.
There is also a train museum exhibiting numerous Italian past trains and locomotives.
