Biography

Tripolino Giannini was born in Cecina, Tuscany, Italy on 20 August 1912. He had two children: Romano and Sergio (died 2004).

In 1929, he participated in the first race of the Targa Cecina, finishing fourth. He served as a Bersaglieri.

On 18 April 2021 at the age of 108, he received his second dose of the Pfizer–BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine, making him one of the oldest people to receive the vaccine.

At the age of 109, he is still able to move on his own and is in good health. As of August 2021, he had five grandchildren and four great-grandchildren.

He became the oldest known living man in Italy, following the death of 109-year-old Giuseppe Venturi on 26 November 2021.
