In 1999 Deiana and colleagues published the first results of an epidemiological study conducted in Sardinia, the second largest island of the Mediterranean Sea, concerning the local population of centenarians. From this study two main results emerge: the prevalence of centenarians in Sardinia is surprisingly high, and the female to male ratio extremely low.
