Giuseppina Robucci passed away at dawn on Tuesday at her father’s home in the Italian town where she was born.
The supercentenarian – who was also the second oldest person in the world – was born on March 20, 1903, in Poggio Imperiale, south of Florence in Tuscany.
It was the same year that a vaccine for typhoid was discovered, the Pulitzer prize was established and the Wright brothers launched their first motorised flight.
Known locally as Nonna Peppa, Robucci had five children, nine grandchildren and 16 great-grandchildren.
