Chapter Summary

Ida Tiziana Melli was born 26 March 1909 to a mixed couple from Padua. Melli used her teaching skills also in propaganda conferences and courses for Fascist women that were organized by the Padua Female Branch of the Fascist Party, to which she belonged. With governmental support, she also published a number of Italian tourist guides, as she highlighted in her signed application letter from 19 December 1938. The bishop of Padua advocated her case in a letter to Cardinal Secretary of State Pacelli, who immediately forwarded the pertinent documentation of Melli to Tacchi Venturi. Apparently, Ida Tiziana Melli was unrelated to Roberto Melli, Rosa Melli, and Gustavo Melli, whose applications for "discrimination" are extant in the same archive.
