Chapter Summary

The accountant Umberto Cava was born to Vittorio on 10 September 1888 in Florence. Umberto, who was awarded the title of Commendatore della Corona d'Italia, described in the application letter his military service during the Great War and his career in the ranks of the Fascist Party, in which he had been enrolled since 1932. Cava attached 16 documents to his original application, which have not been preserved in Tacchi Venturi's archive. Like Elio Guetta's, the case of Cava was recommended by Cardinal Elio Dalla Costa, the archbishop of Florence, to Cardinal Maglione of the Vatican Secretariat of State, who - as usual - forwarded his application to Tacchi Venturi. Various Jews with the name Cava were living in Florence at the time of Nazi deportations, including Ester and Elda (the same name of Umberto's daughter), married to Cesare and Aldo, respectively, who may have been related to Umberto.
