Ildegarda Taffra (born June 30, 1934) was an Italian cross country skier who competed in the 1950s.

She was born in Tarvisio.

Competing in two Winter Olympics, she finished eight in the 3 x 5 km event at Cortina d'Ampezzo in 1956. Taffra also competed in the 10 km event at the 1952 Winter Olympics in Oslo, but did not finish.

Taffra was a six-time national champion and also earned five podium finished in her career, including four victories. Like her compatriot Fides Romanin, she would be an inspiration to future women cross country skiers for Italy, including Manuela Di Centa, Stefania Belmondo, and Gabriella Paruzzi.
