Introduction

Monsignor Antonino Reggio
This blog has been set up to provide information about my current researches. There is much more information to gather and it is hoped that someone out there might be interested and provide more of the information required.

Antonino Reggio (o Riggio) was born in Aci Catena (a commune near to Catania in Sicily ) in 1725. He was born into the Noble family of Reggio principe di Campofiorito e Aci.He became a priest in 1749/50. In about 1765 he went to Rome and became a monsignor.

In a library in Germany are some 20 manuscripts of his music, which is the target of my interest in him.I have been able to work on these manuscripts which have given me a clue as to his identity but, unfortunately have not been able to find much about his life.

I need to make contact with people who have an interest in ecclesiastical history, especially in Sicily (Palermo in particular) and Rome.
