Dina Manfredini (b. April 4, 1897 – d. December 17, 2012) was an Italian-American supercentenarian. She was the oldest verified living person in the world since the death of Besse Cooper on December 4, 2012 until Manfredini died on December 17, 2012, Jiroemon Kimura then took the title. She was born in Italy.

Manfredini was born in the small comune of Pievepelago in the region of Emilia-Romagna, northern Italy. She moved to Des Moines, Iowa, in 1920 with her husband Riccardo Manfredini. The couple raised four children – Mary Russo (b. 1921), Dante (b. 1922), Rudy (1924–1997) and Enes (b. 1928). She worked in an ammunition factory during World War II and cleaned houses until she was 90, although she lied about her age so that people wouldn't think she was too old to work. Her husband worked in a coal mines, but died in 1965 at the age of 79—she was 67. After his death Dina lived alone for 42 years until moving into a nursing home in 2007 at age 110. She survived colon cancer at age 101, still danced at 103, and still shoveled snow at 106. Dina was able to walk with the aid of a walker until shortly before turning 115 when she became confined to a wheelchair. At her death Manfredini had 3 living children (aged 91, 90 and 84), 7 grandchildren, 7 great-grandchildren, and 12 great-great-grandchildren.
