Giovanni Quarisa, the oldest carabiniere in Italy, died last night in Bassano del Grappa (Vicenza) at the age of 110. ANSA learned it from his family. Born on August 24, 1909 in Pieve del Grappa (Treviso), Quarisa lived with his 'historic' caregiver in Bassano del Grappa (Vicenza) in a house he owned.

...Giovanni Quarisa died at 110: he was the oldest carabiniere and man in Italy. He left in silence on Saturday night, March 21st, at 110 years of age, with the same dignity and pride with which he had lived. Giovanni Quarisa, the longest-serving carabiniere in Italy, after passing two World Wars has failed to survive the Coronavirus. "

Just in his home he had been celebrated by parents and friends and by the local chiefs of the carabinieri. His descendants are numerous: two daughters (Vilma and Mirella), four grandchildren and ten great-grandchildren, the youngest being 5 years old. At only 20 years old, in 1929, he entered the Carabinieri Corps, while in 1941 he left for the Second World War and for two years he was a prisoner in Dubrovnik.
