Savignano Irpino lies towards the north-east of the province up in the Cervaro Valley, near the border of the province of Foggia. Located in the Apennines along Daunian Mountains, its territory is bordered by the municipalities of Ariano Irpino, Greci, Montaguto, Monteleone di Puglia and Panni.
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-20th century 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.
The main attractions are the Fontana Angelica built in 1912, the Old Church, St Anna's Chapel and the Guevara Castle.
