Artemides Zatti was a simple man of humble origin. When he was 17 years old, his poverty-stricken family emigrated from Italy to Argentina, where they attended a parish run by the Salesians of Don Bosco. As a Salesian religious brother, Bl Artemides ran a hospital and pharmacy for the sick poor for over 40 years.

He died in 1951, and was beatified in 2002 by Pope John Paul II.
