Abstract

Antonio Todde died of natural causes on January 3, 2002, at the considerable age of 112 years and 347 days. Two weeks later, he would have been 113 years old. In 2001, Antonio was mentioned in the Guinness Book of World Records as the “oldest living man on the planet.” Antonio was an extraordinary man, not only for the singularity of his age but perhaps even more for the strong qualities of his mind and heart and for his fine, typically Sardinian humor. He was the living symbol of the extraordinary longevity that selectively characterizes the male population of Sardinia, a phenomenon whose origin is still matter of scientific debate.
