Beppo Levi (1875-1961) is a well-known Italian mathematician who gave significant contributions in various sectors of mathematics, but was also deeply interested in mathematics education. The scientific training in Torino, the teaching both in secondary schools and in different universities and the experience of his exile in Argentina, after the promulgation of the racial laws in 1938, marked his vision of mathematics and of mathematics education. The aspects we intend to investigate are mainly the following: the epistemological roots of Levi’s thinking in mathematics education; the methodological and didactic tenets that inspired his work; an example of Levi’s thinking in mathematics education put into practice: the Abbaco da 1 a 20 (1922), a little book addressed to the first year of primary school; and finally his educational and cultural project through the journal Mathematicae Notae.
