Romagnano Sesia is a town and comune (municipality) of c. 4,000 inhabitants in the Province of Novara in the Italian region Piedmont, located about 80 km northeast of Turin and about 25 km northwest of Novara.

Romagnano Sesia borders the following municipalities: Cavallirio, Fontaneto d'Agogna, Gattinara, Ghemme, Prato Sesia, and Serravalle Sesia.

One of its most famous historical places is the so-called "Cantina dei Santi" (Saints'cellar), that is a room which is the only reaining evidence of the ancient, powerful Benedectine monastery of S. Silano. The Cantina is completely painted with frescos dating back to the 15th century (Biblical story of David and king Saul).
