He spent all his life between the communities of Verona and Udine. He always worked as a teacher and a principal of our schools. He was a typical teaching priest (or priestly teacher!). Very faithful to his commitments, he was a man of order and duty, a very simple and steady soul. He could not even imagine insubordination and disobedience. At about the age of 70 he underwent a stomach surgery from which he recovered very well and he continued with faithfulness his work.
