Romeno counts approx. 1,400 inhabitants and is situated on a sunny elevated plain, perfect also for extended walks. The name of the village derives from the word "Romani" (Romans), as this village probably was built by Roman immigrants who mingled with the population in the Val di Non valley.
The village features characteristic buildings in typical construction style, still preserved despite of several fires that swept through the village. One of these houses is Casa Rosati, decorated with Renaissance elements as well as double-arched windows. Worth seeing is also the parish church and the S. Tommaso and Bartolomeo church as well as the Bartolomeo farm situated slightly outside the village.
As Romeno is venue of the famous "Ciaspolada", it is also one of the most popular villages of the Val di Non valley. Every year, more than 5,000 participants take part in this snowshoe race that leads from Romeno to Fondo.
Malgolo, however, is one of the two parts of Romeno. The village, inhabited by some 240 citizens, is located on the road to Sanzano at 806 m a.s.l. Next to the village there is the castle of Malgolo surrounded by apple orchards and forests. Salter, 300 inhabitants, is the second little village belonging to Romeno.
