@ale76 The Italian website "Persone viventi più longeve in Italia" is a great thing. If there was something similar for each country, it would be very good. Also Poland has something similar, but it is outdated, while for Italy 107+ is great. And it is often updated, which is the most important thing...

@ale76 I totally agree, it's great and it looks really nice. Monitoring the aging of the population in one country is great, as I say if more countries had something similar it would be really good. 

All praise to the team.
