Savignano Irpino is a village and "comune" in the province of Avellino, in the Campania region of southern Italy.


Savignano Irpino lies towards the east of the province up in the Cervaro Valley, near the border of the Foggia Province. The town is bordered by Ariano Irpino, Greci, Montaguto, Monteleone di Puglia and Panni.

The village is split into two areas, Scalo is the bottom part where there is a railway station and a commercial area. The upper part is mostly residential and this is where the Piazza is located.


Savignano has historical archaeological remains from the pre-Roman and Roman era.

In the Ferrara district the ruins of a Norman fort can be seen. In 1416 it was a fiefdom of Francesco Sforza and from the 17th century belonged to the Guevara family.

The name Savignano derives from the Latin word 'Sabinianum, Sabinus'. Savignano Irpino was previously known as Savignano Di Puglia; this was updated in the mid 1900's as part of boundary changes. In June 2006, Savignano Irpino held a referendum to leave Campania and become part of Apulia again, but failed to achieve a quorum.
