Maria Giuseppa Robucci has died. Europe’s oldest person has left us. “She was an exceptional woman in her simplicity. She died in the paternal house of Poggio Imperiale, where she was born on March 20, 1903, in the flourishing Giolittian age, when the lira was a gold prize.”
Europe’s supernonna has left us a little while ago”. A few words, full of pain and already nostalgia, published on social networks to announce the death of Maria Giuseppa Robucci – for all Nonna Peppa – the oldest woman in Europe (second in the world) .
116 years and 90 days, Robucci was an exceptional woman in her simplicity. She died in the paternal house of Poggio Imperiale, where she was born on March 20, 1903, in the flourishing Giolittian age.
The woman, a widow for many years, in the past took care of the village bar along with her husband Nicola Nargiso, who died in 1982. She had 5 children, three boys and two girls, including Sister Nicoletta of the Sacramentine Sisters of Bergamo, 9 grandchildren and 16 great-grandchildren. Recently, she had overcome a femur fracture at age 111 and had a breast operation two years ago. The secret of her longevity? she attributed it to a clean and healthy lifestyle: “Eat little and healthy, never a glass of wine and never a cigarette in your mouth”.
