Maria Guiseppa Robucci (20 March 1903 - 18 June 2019) was a validated Italian supercentenarian who was, at the age of 116, the second-oldest living person in the world before their death.
Maria Giuseppa Robucci, also 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, Antonio, Giuseppe, and Filomena. 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. She credits her longevity to good diet, having faith in God, avoiding alcohol and having a positive mindset.
On 6 July 2018, she became the oldest person in Italy upon the death of 116-year-old Giuseppina Projetto-Frau.
On 18 June 2019, she died at the age of 116 in Poggio Imperiale, Italy.
