A Big party today in Sicily, albeit at a distance because of the Coronavirus, for the birthday of Maria Oliva, over one hundred years old in Piazza Armerina born on April 16, 1909, exactly 111 years ago.

She is the oldest woman in Sicily and the second oldest woman in Italy after Ermina Bianchini di Bra, who will turn 112 on April 23 next week.
Maria Oliva was born in Piazza Armerina and was a child when she survived the Spanish flu, which hit Sicily when the Super-Grandmother was just 10 years old.
With this beautiful message, the great-grandson Danny Catalano wanted to wish Grandmother Maria a wonderful thought.
