Giuseppe Paterno, 96, Italy's oldest student, wears a traditional laurel wreath awarded to Italian students when they graduate, as he attends his graduation day after completing his undergraduate degree in history and philosophy at the University of Palermo, in Palermo, Italy July 29, 2020. "I said, 'that's it, now or never,' and so in 2017, I decided to enrol," Paterno said. "I understood that it was a little late to get a three-year degree but I said to myself 'let's see if I can do it'."

The Wider Image: Meet Italy's oldest student, surviving WW2 and a pandemic to graduate at 96
At 96, Giuseppe Paterno has faced many tests in life - childhood poverty, war and more recently, the coronavirus pandemic. Now he has sailed through an exam that makes him Italy's oldest university graduate. This week, the former railway worker stepped forward to receive his diploma and the traditional laurel wreath awarded to Italian students when they graduate, applauded by his family, teachers and fellow students more than 70 years his junior. "I am a normal person, like many others," he said, when asked what it felt like to be graduating so late. "In terms of age I have surpassed all the others but I didn't do it for this." Already in his 90s when he enrolled for a degree in History and Philosophy at the University of Palermo, Paterno grew up loving books, but he never had the chance to study. "I said, 'that's it, now or never,' and so in 2017, I decided to enrol," he told Reuters in his apartment in the Sicilian city of Palermo, which he rarely leaves nowadays due to his frailty. "I understood that it was a little late to get a three-year degree but I said to myself 'let's see if I can do it'." On Wednesday, he graduated first in his class with top honours, receiving congratulations from the university chancellor Fabrizio Micari.

Brazil's Valmir Nunes kisses the foot of Leonidas statue at the finishing line of the Spartathlon marathon race in Sparti, southwestern Greece September 29, 2007. The Spartathlon is a 246 km (153 mile) race from Athens to Sparta, which organisers say retraces the footsteps of the ancient Greek messenger Pheidippides, famous for running from Marathon to Athens to bring news of a victory against the Persians. Along the way runners face heatstroke, blood blisters, lost toenails and hallucinations from exhaustion. Their reward is a sip of water given by 'Spartan virgins', in the tradition of ancient Greek history. To match feature SPARTATHLON/ Picture taken September 29, 2007. REUTERS/John Kolesidis (GREECE)

-PHOTO TAKEN 24JUL05- Bulgarian archaeologist Daniela Agre shows golden wreath of laurels found at a Thracian king's tomb near the village of Zlatinitsa, some 330 km south-east from the capital Sofia, July 24, 2005. In the tomb, dated back to the fourth century B.C., archaeologists discovered a golden wreath, golden ring, body armour and many funeral gifts, silver greaves decorated with mythological scenes, tens of golden, silver and bronze ornaments. It is believed to be the richest Thracian tomb to be discovered in the past century. Not much history has survived of the Thracians, who some experts say settled on what is now Bulgaria, Romania, northern Greece and Turkey's European territory from as early as 4 000 BC until they were finally incorporated into the Roman Empire in AD 46. Picture taken July 24, 2004.
