Manufactures include typewriters, computers, and textiles. A Roman town (Eporedia), it was later the capital of a Lombard duchy and then the seat of a marquisate. Berengar II, one of its rulers, was briefly king of Italy (mid-10th cent.). Ivrea passed to the house of Savoy in the 14th cent. The city is dominated by a picturesque castle (14th cent.), which has four red brick towers.
