The present work deals with the contribution of the Italian physicist Franco Selleri to the research on particle physics. Selleri graduated in 1957--1958 with Professor Puppi, discussing a thesis entitled Analisi dell'interazione pione-nucleone. Selleri published, even in collaboration with Francesco Bonsignori and Ezio Ferrari, several papers during the years 1958--1969. Selleri became well known after formulating, together with Francesco Bonsignori, the so-called peripheral model. During his stay at CERN, he introduced the so-called one-pion exchange model, extending the peripheral model to proton-proton interactions thanks to the contribution of Ezio Ferrari and the suggestions of Sergio Fubini.
