Wandering with the Centenarians

Daniela Mari

Published: September 2017 | 166 pp.

Bergman once said: «Old age is like climbing a mountain. The higher you get, the more tired and breathless you become, but your views become more extensive». Daniela Mari, a widely quoted professor of Geriatrics, tackles one of the pivotal themes of our age: what does aging actually mean, and how can we gracefully and healthily grow old? Drawing from years of personal experience studying centenarians, Mari embarks on an exciting journey to show us that our ways of living, from eating habits to sleeping patterns, can influence our aging process more than our genes. The result is an invaluable book, deeply researched and elegantly written, which proves that we have nothing to fear from growing old. The view atop of the mountain is truly stunning.

Daniela Mari is Professor of Geriatrics at the University of Milan and director of the Geriatric Unit, IRCCS Ca’ Granda Maggiore Hospital Foundation.
