English: Oliviero Carafa (1430 – 20 January 1511) was an Italian cardinal and diplomat of the Renaissance. Like the majority of his era's prelates, he displayed the lavish and conspicuous standard of living that was expected of a prince of the Church. In his career he set an example of conscientiousness for his contemporaries and mentored his relative, Giovanni Pietro Carafa, who became Pope Paul IV.
Italiano: Fu esponente dell'illustre famiglia napoletana dei Carafa, a sua volta discendente dai Caracciolo. Potente e rispettata, la dinastia dei Carafa, che nel XVI secolo avrebbe raggiunto l'apice del proprio prestigio con l'elezione a Sommo Pontefice di Gian Pietro, Papa Paolo IV, aveva acquisito importanza nel corso del '300 grazie a Bartolomeo, arcivescovo di Bari.
