Sergeant Italo Prada was an English airman of the Royal Air Force Volunteer Reserve who died during the Second World War.

He was born in 1921, at Pancras, the son of Italian-born Giacomo and Anetta Prada (née Pellegrini).

Prada, an air gunner in 9 Squadron, died on 31 March 1944, when his Avro Lancaster (serial W5006) was shot down while returning from an operation against Nuremberg. At the time of his death, Italo's father was detained on the Isle of Man, where the government had established internment camps for Italian nationals.[1]

He is buried in Hanover War Cemetery.
