Giuseppe Ripamonti (1573–1643) was an Italian historian.

Ripamonti was born in Colle Brianza, and became a Doctor of Biblioteca Ambrosiana in Milan.

He wrote in Latin Historia Ecclesiae Mediolanensis (1625) ("History of the Church of Milan") and De peste Mediolani quae fuit anno 1630 (1640) ("About the plague that occurred in Milan in year 1630").

These works were important sources from which Alessandro Manzoni derived the historical background of his novel The Betrothed. He died at Rovagnate (Brianza).
