100-year-old and 97-year-old celebrate 77th anniversary
'For us Valentine's Day has lasted 77 years'05 September, 17:32
''A simple cake and a small family party'' is how Gravano said the couple chose to celebrate. Cesarino Gravano, who turned 100 this year, met his bride Anna Maiotto in elementary school in Vado Ligure - where they still live - and fell in love some years later.
Gravano became a blue-collar worker, while Maiotto tended to their four children, home and beloved vegetable garden.
''My love for Cesarino has always been constant and true.
If someone asks us the meaning of St. Valentine's, I always reply in the same way: for us Valentine's Day has lasted 77 years,'' said Maiotto.
