Talk of the Town
Photograph by David McLain

One of three centenarians in Arzana, Sardinia, 107-year-old Raffaella Monne still lives in her own home, where a niece helps care for her. She wakes up late in the morning, drinks coffee, and, until recently, walked down to the piazza each day to people-watch. "I can talk a lot too," says Monne. "The only thing that works is my tongue."
