In this review, dedicated to the centenary of the birth of the great neutrino physicists Bruno Pontecorvo, I am discussing proposed by him radiochemical method of neutrino detection, his idea of the μ-e universality of the weak interaction and proposal of the accelerator neutrino experiment which allowed to proof that νe and νμ are different particles. In some details I discuss Pontecorvo’s pioneer idea of neutrino masses, mixing and oscillations and the development of this idea by Pontecorvo and Gribov and Pontecorvo and myself.
