Aldo Pontremoli was the founder of the first Institute of Physics of the University of Milan. The aim of this paper is to offer a reconstruction of his scientific career and how it was affected by the interplay between scientific practices, institutional abilities, and love for adventure. Pontremoli’s scientific life will be analysed in three main periods: the training years, the researches in Rome, and the researches in Milan. A particular attention will be given to the establishment of the Institute of Complementary Physics and of the Laboratory of Radiology, to the public competition for the chair of Theoretical Physics, and the 1928 polar expedition on the Italia airship.
