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 organization said Sergio Bodini possesses 1,444 different newspaper titles from 115 different countries, earning the record for largest collection of newspapers – 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 sport journalist… but I eventually ended up being a chemist,” Bodini said.
