BIOGRAPHY

Vantini was born in Negrar di Valpolicella, Veneto, Italy, on 4 June 1914. She was the youngest of seven siblings. During her childhood, she faced numerous hardships, such as losing her mother and taking on household responsibilities.

In 1937, Vantini moved to Castel d’Azzano with her husband, Gino Baetta, where they worked as sharecroppers. They had three children, and would go on to have six grandchildren, seven great-grandchildren, and, in 2024, Vantini became a great-great-grandmother. Her husband Gino passed away in 2019.

Despite her age, Vantini has remained active and engaged in her community. At 103, she participated in a referendum on Veneto’s autonomy. Her commitment was recognised by the regional president, Luca Zaia, and the mayor of Castel d’Azzano.

On her 109th birthday, Vantini was visited by her family, including her three children and many descendants, with local officials extending their congratulations and best wishes. Governor Luca Zaia and Mayor Elena Guadagnini praised her remarkable life and contributions to the community.

Vantini is the Italian region of Veneto’s oldest resident, according to Supercentenari d’Italia.
