The West Region of Santa Catarina is the space constituted by the territory of the primitive city of
Chapecó. If administratively, there was a region that did not occur under the geographical point of
view, since the census in 1920 found in that area, the population of 11,315 inhabitants.
“Chapecó, in the beginning of the century, was not a living space; it had no quota for the regional
human life.” (Peluso, 1892). In a historical retrospective, since the days of colonial Brazil, the region
was east domain issues object of your area: Misiones question or issue of Palmas and limits
Question (Answered) between SC and PR, greatly hindering the effective process settlement.
The first moments for the regional population, are linked to São Paulo in its march towards the south
of Brazil. The creation of the municipality of Chapecó, on August 25, 1917, accounted for east region:
a) the definition of the region as an integral part of this state’s context ­ new political and
administrative unit; b) the urgent need for a settlement of action for the region by the constituted
authorities at the local and state level; c) a transfer of settlement for the particular initiative. Thus, the
colonization of the region begins with the first manifestations towards the region receive shares of the
Companies and enterprises of colonization, through the sale and / or donation of land by the
government. The Companies colonizing reach the east region settling with equity. The government of
Santa Catarina participated giving some incentives for colonizing entrepreneurship ­ the pressing
need for occupation of the region. Thus opens up the systematic colonization of the region. Among
the Companies Colonization who worked in the municipality of Chapecó region, from its inception, we
highlight the Company Colonizadora founded by Ernesto Francisco Bertaso and brothers Agilberto
Atilio and Manoel dos Passos Maia in 1918 and settled in the old town Pass the Indians (present city
of Chapecó) with an office.
In 1923 there was the dissolution of the company, going all the assets and liabilities to Ernesto
Bertaso and their descendants. This colonizing became the owner of vast area and responsible for
any commercial enterprise and colonization in their heritage that hit house. The
initial area under the jurisdiction of colonizing Bertaso, covered the farms: a) the Campina Gregory,
with 15 million bushels, ie 509.234.874m2, acquired by purchase in 1918 of the heirs of Baroness de
Limeira (SP). b) Farms Beautiful Rodeo and Chapecó, totaling 100 million hectares, by permission of
the State of Santa Catarina, whose contract date of June 26, 1920 respectively, the area of ​​the farms
was: 288.202.080m2 and 538.186.742m2.
Bertaso, even if not the founder of some villages in Western Santa Catarina, was undeniably one of
the main elements responsible for the growth and expansion of the same. The company he headed
left as ground strokes from the present city of Chapecó and villages then, Table Coronel Freitas (now
county), Fernando Machado (now High Mountains district), Simões Lopes (now Coronel Freitas
district) and Quilombo (County). The company Colonizadora Bertaso built roads and established the
grounds thousands of settlers coming from various parts of the former colonies of Rio Grande do Sul.

the resulting sale of production to Silver countries through the ferry system, took over. Thanks to the
fertility of its soil, in a short time east region entered into a broad process of colonial economic
expansion south of the country.
