Largest newspaper collection
An Italian man, who has been collecting newspapers since he was only 10 years old, was awarded a Guinness World Record for his collection of 1,444 different titles.
The record-keeping organisation said Sergio Bodini possesses 1,444 different newspaper titles from 115 different countries, earning the record for largest collection of newspapers of different titles.
Bodini said his collection began when he was only 10 years old and he now keeps his papers in plastic boxes in a temperature-controlled cellar.
“When I was in school we had a class project about newspapers and I fell in love with journalism. My dream was to become a sports journalist … but I eventually ended up being a chemist,” Bodini said.
