Metropolitan '''Antonio (de Rosso)''' is the current head of the formerly-[[Old Calendarist]] [[Orthodox Church in Italy]] and the [[Metropolitan]] of [[Ravenna (Italy)|Ravenna]] and Italy.
Metr. Antonio was born in 1941 in Farra di Soligo (near Treviso, Veneto). In 1968 he was [[ordination|ordained]] a [[priest]] in the [[Roman Catholic Church]]. In 1986, after his conversion to [[Orthodox Church|Orthodoxy]] he was named [[bishop]] of Aprilia and Latium under the [[jurisdiction]] of Metr. [[Cyprian of Fili|Cyprian]] of Oropos and Fili, a leader of the [[Greek Old Calendarists]] movement. In 1991 he founded the Orthodox Church in Italy. In 1993 Bp. Antonio joined the [[Bulgarian Orthodox Church]], and in 1995 was enthroned bishop of Ravenna and Italy. After 1997 the [[Orthodox Church in Italy]] remained linked with [[Patriarch]] Pimen's Bulgarian Alternative Synod and Bp. Antonio became Metropolitan of Ravenna and Italy. In the same year Metr. Antonio became a full member of Pimen's [[Holy Synod]], as the head of the autonomous Orthodox Church in Italy.
Metr. Antonio's [[apostolic succession]] derives from Metr. Cyprian (Old Calendarist). In 1993 he introduced the [[Revised Julian Calendar|reformed Julian calendar]] into the Orthodox Church in Italy, thus ending any association with the [[Old Calendarist]] movement.
