Cristoforo Besozzi (born 1661 in Milan – d. 22 October 1725 in Piacenza) was an Italian oboist, bassoonist and founder of a large family of wind players very influential around Parma, Naples and Turin for more than 200 years. In 1700 he settled in Parma, taking part as oboist in the ducal hautboy band Guardia Irlandese with his son Giuseppe Besozzi in 1711. His other two sons, Alessandro and Paolo Girolamo Besozzi, joined him from 1714.
