The article is focused on Ettore Passerin d'Entrèves: one of the most important Italian historians in the second half of XX Century. During the last part of WWII, he emigrated to Switzerland. The aim of this essay is to reconstruct his cultural and political action when he returned in Italy at the end of the war. He participated - as pro-Italian - to the autonomist struggles in Valle d'Aosta, his land. At the same time, he joined the Catholic Communist Party and, after the death of this party, he wandered among small intellectual groups of Left-Wing Italian Catholicism. Because of his strong intellectual freedom, such a path appears historically significant.
