Congratulations on your new arrival! I'm a huge fan of the name Rowan, I don't really think Brit when I hear it. I agree that it is a softer sound than Roman, but still a strong name. Your little guy could rock it.
I like Roman and I don't really think Italian when I hear it. I think the name has been around enough to shed that exclusive association. Paired with an Italian last night, I think it's okay. I mean, yes, it does suggest an Italian family and I don't think there is anything wrong with that. You love the name, it represents his family and heritage, it suits him, then go for it!
I prefer Orson over Oliver.Proud Mama to Serena GenevieveExpecting Twin Boys Summer 2014

I think of Roman as more Latin than Italian despite the obvious connection. I don't think it sounds "over-the-top" Italian at all.
Depending on the flow with whichever name you go with, you might want to consider Frank in the second spot instead of Gianfranco, just to trim down the length of the name. I think Orson Frank or Oliver Frank would be really cute.
