Biography

Carlo Dozzi was born on 20 January 1901 in Maniago. During World War I, Dozzi and his father dug trenches and added barbed wire to them. After the war, he moved to The Netherlands. During his time there, he met Vittoria Antonini, whom he married in 1936. They moved back to Maniago and had two children, Matilde and Luciano. Dozzi worked at Coricama (a tool company) until his retirement.

Dozzi was widowed in 1995 after 59 years of marriage. He soon moved into his daughter's home. Dozzi became the oldest living man in Italy on 26 October 2008 following Delfino Borroni's death and held the title for the last seven months of his life. Dozzi died on 30 May 2009 at the age of 108 years, 130 days, and Giovanni Ligato became the oldest man in the country. He experienced no major health problems leading up to his death.
