Luigi Crippa (Monza, January 2, 1838 - Sovico, January 5, 1895) was an Italian sculptor. Born in Monza, he studied sculpture in Milan at the Brera Academy where he was a pupil of Pompeo Marchesi. He begins to exhibit in Turin in 1859; from the following year he exhibited successfully at the annual exhibitions of Brera: in 1862 he exhibited the marble group Venere che joking with Love which was purchased by Prince Umberto for the Royal Villa of Monza. During the 1960s he made various sculptures for public and private clients: for the Milan Cathedral, for the Monumental Cemetery of Milan (Maccia sepulcher), for the Sacile Cathedral. Other works are in Pallanza, Chiari, Rho, Pavia. In the 1970s he was engaged in official statuary with numerous monuments dedicated to Vittorio Emanuele II: in Rome (Pincio), in Sondrio and in Monza. Some of his works are kept at the Gallery of Modern Art in Milan (Funerary Genius) and at the Civic Museum of Padua (Bimbo con palla, from 1874).
