Giovan Battista di Crollalanza (19 May 1819 – 8 March 1892) was an Italian writer.[1] From 1841 he published works on many topics and in several genres, among them histories, plays and poetry. From the 1870s he wrote only on heraldry.

His Giornale araldico-genealogico-diplomatico, a monthly periodical of heraldry, started publication in 1873, and ceased only in 1905. His Annuario della nobiltà italiana ("yearbook of the Italian nobility"), a genealogical almanach of Italian noble families and the first of its kind in the new Kingdom of Italy, started publication in 1879; as with the Giornale, his sons, first Goffredo, later Aldo, took over publication after his death.[1]

His last and major work was the Dizionario storico-blasonico delle famiglie nobili e notabili italiane estinte e fiorenti, a heraldic-historical dictionary of the Italian nobility. It was published in Pisa in three volumes between 1886 and 1890.[1]
