Tripolino Giannini (born 20 August 1912) is an Italian centenarian who is currently the oldest known living man in Italy. However, he is not the oldest living Italian-born man as Delio Venturotti of Brazil is older.
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.
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.
Giannini currently lives with his 85-year-old son Romano and daughter-in-law Rosanna Magnozzi in Cecina, Tuscany, Italy, at the age of 109 years, 280 days. He is also the second-oldest known living person in Tuscany, behind Cristina Paloscia.
