If at high energy QCD can be described using perturbation theory due to asymptotic freedom, when going at low energy the fundamental degrees of freedom of the theory, quarks are gluons, are bounded inside hadrons. The hadron structure in terms of partons has been studied since the 1960s. Today several objects have been both theoretically and experimentally studied, like for instance Generalized Parton Distributions (GPDs) which contains a three dimensional information about the parton structure of hadrons. However, it is still not possible to compute such objects directly from QCD first principles. As a first step toward this ideal goal, we have developed here a model for the pion GPD based on the Dyson-Schwynger equations, which are a way to compute QCD non pertubative Green functions. We have successfully compared our model with available experimental data of pion form factor and pion Parton Distribution Function (PDF), and managed to sketch the partonic 3D structure of the pion.
