Cesare Nosiglia (born 5 October 1944) has been the archbishop of Turin since his appointment by Pope Benedict XVI on 11 October 2010.

Nosiglia was born in 1944 in Rossiglione, Italy. He was ordained as a priest and assigned to the Diocese of Acqui on 29 June 1968 at the age of 23. Nosiglia was sent to Rome for further studies in theology. He obtained a licence in theology from the Lateran University and a licentiate in Sacred Scripture from the Pontifical Biblical Institute. After several years in a parish, he received a commission from the National Catechetical Office, where he remained from 1971 to 1991 and later as Deputy Director.

He held various roles in the Italian Episcopal Conference including a member of the Episcopal Commission for Doctrine and catechesis from 1992 to 1999. He also served as secretary of the Episcopal Commission for Catholic Education from 1995, and since 2000, was president.

On 6 July 1991 he was appointed Auxiliary Bishop of Rome and Titular Bishop of Victoriana by Pope John Paul II. In this role he assisted the cardinal vicar for the diocese of Rome, Camillo Ruini. He was consecrated on 14 September 1991 by Cardinal Ruini. On 19 July 1996 he was given the personal rank of archbishop.

He remained in Rome until his appointment in 2003 as Bishop of Vicenza. On 11 October 2010 he was appointed as archbishop of Turin, replacing Cardinal Severino Poletto.[1]
