Italian oldest woman in world turning 117

Verbania, November 28 - Emma Morano, the world's oldest woman, will celebrate her 117th birthday at her home in Verbania on Tuesday. A German TV crew is expected to film the event and Morano will receive a visit from the city's mayor, Silvia Marchionini. Morano was born on November 29, 1899 in the town of Civiasco, about an hour south of her current home near Lago Maggiore. A play at the Il Maggiore Theatre in Verbania will be held in her honour on Tuesday evening, reviewing the last 117 years that in Italy saw three kings, about a dozen presidents and 11 popes. When asked how she's doing, Morano responds: "I believe well - my doctor says so too".
