BIOGRAPHY

Tripolino Giannini was born in Cecina, Tuscany, Italy, on 20 August 1912. At some point, he married a woman named Tosca, and the couple had two children: Romano and Sergio (who died in 2004). He ran a fruit and vegetable shop in Piazza Carducci. In 1929, he participated in the first foot race of the Targa Cecina, finishing fourth. He served as a Bersaglieri.

As of August 2021, he had five grandchildren and four great-grandchildren. In August 2023, he celebrated his 111th birthday at home with a party attended by friends, relatives, and officials from the Cecina municipal administration, including Deputy Mayor Antonio Giuseppe Costantino and Municipal Councilor Mauro Niccolini. Representatives from local chapters of the National Bersaglieri Association also joined the celebration. At that time, he was reported to be in good health, remaining lucid, interactive, conversing with everyone, and cherishing relationships. When asked about the secret to his longevity, he attributed it to light meals, a good glass of wine, abstaining from smoking, and minimizing stress.

Tripolino Giannini passed away in Cecina, Tuscany, Italy, on 31 December 2023 at 09:30 am, at the age of 111 years, 133 days.
