In 1901, Pier was born in Turin, Italy. He exhibited great concern for the poor starting in his childhood. Pier joined the St. Vincent de Paul Society and spent hours helping the sick and poor. As a mining engineer, Pier cared greatly about miner rights. He advocated for just working conditions and fair wages.
 
Pier was very faithful. He went to Mass every day to receive the Eucharist and he also prayed the Rosary. Pier shared his faith with others.
 
Pier lived life to the fullest. He was handsome and athletic and loved hiking, mountain climbing, riding horses, and skiing.
