Federico Santa Maria

Federico Santa Maria Carrera was a Chilean businessman and philanthropist. He was of Basque descent.

Federico Santa Maria was born in Valparaiso, the son of Juan Antonio Santa Maria Artigas and of Magdalena Carrera Aguirre. Although he was a member of two of the most respected and influential Chilean families of the 19th century, the Santa Maria and the Carrera families, he made his huge fortune in the sugar markets of Paris, in which he arrived when he was very young.

Because he had no descendants, he gave his entire fortune to his hometown Valparaiso for the founding of a technical and engineering school. The result of his legacy was the Federico Santa Maria Technical University.
