He was born in Trento in 1970. He made his Solemn Profession as a Discalced Carmelite in 1996 and was ordained a priest in 1997.
He graduated in Spiritual Theology at the Institute of Spirituality at the Faculty of Theology Teresianum in Rome, and in Philosophy and Spirituality at the Pontificio Ateneu S. Anselmo in Rome, where he also earned a doctorate in the History of Theology.
He was appointed Postulator General of the Order of Discalced Carmelites on June 6, 2012, succeeding the previous Postulator P. Iidefonso Moriones.
In July 2013, he moved to Portugal, and took charge of the Diocesan phase of the Process, to deepen his knowledge about the development of the Cause of Beatification of Sister Lúcia and visit the places where she lived, Fátima and Coimbra.
It was concluded that the work of the Cause of this Servant of God is very large, given to her long life, her many writings and with the many issues that she was involved and related to. In his opinion, the Process is to be developed in the best possible way, since a large part of the work has been done which is necessary for the completion of this diocesan phase. He expressed the desire that soon, the Cause could reach Rome, there, to give a continuation to its development.
P. Romano also took knowledge of two cases that may be considered miracles, that will be analyzed and studied in Rome, by competent experts.
