Celle di San Vito (Arpitan: Cèles de Sant Vuite, IPA: [ˈsɛləs də ˈsɑ̃t ˈvɥit]) is a town and comune in the province of Foggia of the Apulia region in central southeast Italy.

Residents of Celle and the neighboring village of Faeto speak a rare dialect of the Arpitan language called Faetar, which has fewer than 1,400 known speakers. The town's dialect is also represented in Brantford, Ontario, Canada, which received many immigrants from Celle di San Vito beginning in the early 1950s. At its peak several hundred daily speakers used the language in Brantford. As of 2012, the daily speakers have dwindled to fewer than 50 spread over three generations.
