CRESPI

Typically Milanese, widespread in Busto Arsizio (VA), there is also a stock in the province of Imperia, it derives from nicknames linked to toponyms such as Crespi d'Adda (BG), or to somatic features, such as hair type. In 1550 we find Pietro Antonio Crespi, a native of Busto Arsizio, who was ordained a priest by the Archbishop Carlo Borromeo and who became the parish priest of Morazzone (VA) in 1581, in 1585 he was elected Prete Canonico in the village of Busto Arsizio, also in Busto Arsizio ( VA), in 1600, we find a notary named Francesco Crespi de Roberti, and a noble lawyer Gabriele Crespi, famous painter, great protagonist of Milanese painting, was Daniele Crespi, known as Raffaello Lombardo, born in Busto in 1597 and died of plague in Milan in 1630. He was one of the greatest artists of the 17th century in Lombardy.
