Born into an upper class Italian family, son of the editor of leading newspaper La Stampa, Pier Giorgio spent his time rescuing those in need in the poor neighborhoods of Turin. In a period marked by the rise of fascism in Italy, he was also involved in politics and was committed to working for social justice.
The energy for these commitments came from his relationship with Christ and his intense prayer life. He was surrounded by close friends with whom he shared his faith and his passions. With a love of sports and mountains, he enjoyed taking his friends ‘up to the summits'.
Pier Giorgio Frassati died aged 24, following a fatal disease contracted whilst working with a poor family.
On 20th May 1990 he was beatified by Pope John Paul II who called him the 'Man of the 8 Beatitudes'
