Cardinal Ella Dalla Costa, who as Archbishop of Florence directed his diocese to save hundreds of Italian Jews in 1943, has been recognised by Yad Vashem as a "Righteous Gentile".

Dalla Costa organized Italian priests to aid Jewish refugees by hiding them in monasteries and church institutions.

Dalla Costa died in 1960. Without identified next of kin, his medal will be kept at Yad Vashem.
