Benetton made it back-to-back wins against Welsh opposition as they eased past Dragons at Stadio de Monigo.
Fly-half Antonio Rizzi and wing Ratuva Tavuyara scored two tries for Benetton within the first 20 minutes.
Two more tries from Luca Sperandio and Monty Ioane ensured a bonus point for the Italians before the break.
Jarred Rosser pulled a try back on the stroke of half-time before tries from Giovanni Pettinelli, Robert Barbieri and Niccolo Cannone extended the lead.
Tavuyara thought he had his second try in the second half, but the TMO said Dragons centre Tyler Morgan denied him with a last-ditch tackle.
The TMO also denied replacement Tommaso Iannone a try after another brilliant tackle from Morgan held the ball up.
Dragons are still without an away win in the Pro14 since March 2015, a run of 41 games.
Benetton are up to second in Pro14's Conference B while the Dragons remain joint-bottom, one place above Southern Kings on points difference.
