Franca Falcucci (22 March 1926 – 4 September 2014) was an Italian politician who was a member of the Christian Democracy Party. She served as a member of the Senate and was the first woman to become Minister of Public Education.
In 1974, the Minister of Education Franco Maria Malfatti asked Falcucci to chair a team in charge of researching the problems of disabled students. The "Falcucci Document", issued in 1975, was one of the most advanced studies of disability issues at both the European and international level, promoting a new way of thinking about the issue. The document stated that "... school brings educational action and potential of each student, and looks as the most appropriate structure to overcome the conditions of marginalization that would otherwise be condemned children with disabilities ..."
