In the summer of 1847 pope Pius IX named him Archbishop of Milan at the time of THE Kingdom of Lombardy–Venetia after Gaisruck an Austrian prelate. This appointment was welcomed by the people of his Archdiocese because after an Austrian prelate, an Italian was named to lead an Archdiocese in a territory where there was a strong desire for independence from Austria. He died in Milan on 9 May 1859 during the Second Italian War of Independence.
