He entered our Congregation at the age of 21 in Parma, when our Confreres had just opened that community.  After his profession he was sent to Bassano, Pavia and Rome, and here he worked for more than thirty years as a cook. The hard life of those poor dwellings caused him a form of asthma, which affected him for the rest of his life.  He lived also in our communities of Ortonovo, Gemona and the Stimmate. He spent the last years of his life in the Formation House working as a carpenter.
