He was ordained into the priesthood at a very early age and was a professor of literature. Anthony Gianelli founded a small missionary congregation inspired on the Redemptorists of Alphonse Ligouri, the Missoners of St. Alphonse Ligouri. He was appointed bishop of Bobbio and from this position he succeeded in correcting many of the problems in the diocese and parishes. He also founded a congregation of women devoted to providing free schooling to poor children that is widely known throughout Latin America as the Gianelli Sisters.
