Biography

Maria Giuseppa Robucci, affectionately known as 'Nonna Peppa', was born in 1903 in Poggio Imperiale, province of Foggia, Apulia region, Italy. Her parents were Antonio and Maria Michela Robucci. On 3 December 1928, she married Nicola Nargiso. The couple had five children named Angelo, Concetta (who later became a nun named Sister Nicoletta), Antonio, Giuseppe & Filomena. Reportedly, the years after World War II were tough economically for the Nargiso family.

Robucci became a widow in 1982, after the death of Nicola. In 2003, her 100th birthday was featured in a television show called ”La vita in diretta” for the channel Rai Uno. At the age of 100, she was still able to chop wood.

In 2014, Robucci broke her hip after a fall and underwent surgery. As of 2015, her son Angelo is still alive at the age of 86. She credits her longevity to good diet, having faith in God, avoiding alcohol and having a postive mindset.

On 6 July 2018, she became the oldest person in Italy upon the death of 116-year-old Giuseppina Projetto-Frau.

At the age of 115, Robucci is currently the oldest living person in Italy and the second-oldest in the world. She currently resides in Apricena, Apulia region.
