In 1823, after four years of vacancy, because of a process of territorial restructuring of the Sicilian Church which began in 1778, the Archdiocese of Messina, greatly reduced in size, had a new archbishop, namely Francesco di Paola Villadicani. A member of the local noblesse, the new archbishop owed his promotion mainly to some political influences than to his own qualities. Nevertheless, he held his offi ce for thirty-eight years, without any particular distinction as far as his pastoral action and capacity of government. After his appointment as a Cardinal (1843), he became an opponent of the policy adopted by the Neapolitan Government and soon after left the leadership of the archdiocese to ‘next of kin’. At last, because of some complaints about some serious abuses Villadicani introduced in his diocesan curia, the Neapolitan Government and the Roman Curia decided jointly to proceed to the unusual appointment of an apostolic administrator to restore order in the archdiocese.
