The life of Luigi Credaro’s wife, Elisa Paini, allows us to observe some aspects of Credaro’s life in a new light. Through unpublished archival documents and letters of the spouses, the role of his wife is revealed, who was not only a trusted advisor but also a very reserved collaborator of the “Rivista Pedagogica” [Educational Journal] and the Unione Magistrale Nazionale, the Elementary school teachers national union. Elisa also represented the reference point for Credaro’s friends and colleagues and for anyone who wanted to reach him, to such an extent that she replaced her husband in his written communication.
