Moiano is a comune (municipality) in the Province of Benevento in the Italian region Campania, located about 40 kilometres (25 mi) northeast of Naples and about 20 kilometres (12 mi) southwest of Benevento on the western slope of the Monte Taburno, on the river Isclero.

The economy is mostly agricultural (cereals, fruit, vine). The main attraction is the church of St. Sebastian, with a fresco cycle by Tommaso Giaquinto.
