Scarampi is the name of a prominent Ghibelline family of Asti and its environs in north-west Italy. They were bankers of the Casane astigiane first in Genoa and then in France and in Belgium. In 1337 Antonio Scarampi, in exchange for 115,000 florins, became feudatory of Bubbio, Monastero Bormida, Roccaverano, Cortemilia, Perletto, Cairo, Altare and other places of the Langhe.
Historical figures with the name Scarampi include:

- Cappelletti (p. 398) identifies his tenure of the bishopric as 1336–1339, Casalis as 1337–1340. Capalletti describes him as being Casalese (p.385): this is quite possible, but might also be explained by Camino being close to this more important centre.
