Abstract: The author presents the first researched excursus on the life, works and thought of Father Umberto Pietrogrande (1930-2015), based on the consultation of published as well as unpublished sources. Born in Padua to a Catholic and prosperous family, he graduated in Law and occupied leader positions in the context of local associations until the time of his religious call. He was sent to Brazil by his fellow Jesuits to deal with the relocation of metropolises from the countryside to the suburban areas. He championed practical and innovative solutions such as the rural family schools and the pedagogy of alternation, which were adopted throughout the country. Thanks to his pro-jects, he managed to create an important basis for the international cooperation and he succeeded in the realisation of Aes-Ccc, Mepes and Funaci.
