Corrado Cagli (1910–1976) was an Italian painter of Jewish heritage, who lived in the United States during World War II.

Cagli was born in Ancona but he moved with his family to Rome in 1915 at the age of five. In 1927, he made his artistic debut, with a mural painted on a building in Via Sistina. The following year, he made another mural painting in a hall in Via Vantaggio. In 1932, he held his first personal exhibition at the Gallery of Art of Rome. Together with other artists such as Giuseppe Capogrossi and Emanuele Cavalli, he formed the group “New Roman School of Painting,” better known as Scuola Romana. In 1937 and 1938, he exhibited works at the “Comet” gallery in New York City.
