Maria Angela "Margiti" Crescini-Carrara (20 January 1904 – 17 December 2015) was an Italian supercentenarian whose age has been validated by the Gerontology Research Group (GRG). She was the second-oldest living person in the Italian region of Lombardy at the time of her death, behind Emilia Zucchetti. However, since Zucchetti was born in Veneto, Crescini was the oldest person born in Lombardy.
