Arcenio Cobba Balcazar (7 July 1907 (claimed 1906) – 21 July 2017) was a Peruvian-Italian supercentenarian whose age is currently unvalidated by the Gerontology Research Group.


Arcenio Cobba Balcazar was born in Peru on 7 July 1907 (claimed 1906). He claimed to have been born in 1906, but doubts have been raised about his claim by GRG correspondents.

At some point in his life, he emigrated to Italy. He ate corn, grain, papaya, and simple cheese. Both parents died at the age of 104 and his brothers surpassed the age of 100.

Cobba Balcazar died in Rome, Lazio, Italy on 21 July 2017 at the age of 110 years, 14 days (claimed 111 years, 14 days). At the time of his death, he was the second-oldest known living man in Italy, behind Valerio Piroddi (1905–2017).
