Yesterday I made a coincidential found in an old Austrian newspaper called Tagblatt. Published  August 1 1928.

One can read that there were (only) 51 persons over 100 years in Italy. No differentiation how many of them are male or female. Most of them had black eyes, black hair (in the past?) and had an average figure in their youth. For every cententarian one created a short biography. Source is Italian Central Statistic Institute.

Has anybody got old statistics of Italy?

How many centenarians are there nowadays?

ANNO, Tagblatt, 1928-08-01, Seite 3 (onb.ac.at) (German. At the very top in the middle.)

@ale76 

93 years later: 336,8 times more centenarians. A tremendous increase!

Saying "only" 51 centenarians in 1928 is not a valuation. It is a neutral statement, by the way.

As you can see, one had to be extraordinarily robust to reach that age. Being 100 years old 100 years ago could be defined as 110 years nowadays. Not really, of course. A lame comparison but a comparison.
