The world's oldest person has died in Italy at the age of 117, APA reports quoting BBC.
Morano's extraordinarily long life began on 29 November 1899.
She lived through two world wars and Italy's economic boom to the present day.
"She didn't suffer", said Morano's longtime doctor, Dr. Carlo Bava, who reported that she passed away very peacefully, while sitting in her rocking chair at home.
He said he had last visited Morano on Friday, and she had talked to him and held his hand as she normally did.
"She didn't suffer. I'm happy she didn't suffer but passed away that way, tranquilly", Bava said Saturday.
Morano, who celebrated her 117th birthday in November last year, officially became the world's oldest person following the death of 116-year-old Susannah Mushatt Jones in NY in May 2016.
