The Wider Image: Meet Italy's oldest student, surviving WW2 and a pandemic to graduate at 96
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'."
