Andrea Bonomi (Cassano d'Adda, Italy, February 14, 1923 - November 26, 2003) was a footballer with A.C. Milan football club. Born in Cassano d'Adda, Italy, and initially nicknamed as Ciapin, Bonomi was the AC Milan captain in the 1950/1951 season, which ended with a Serie A triumph for the rossoneri led by the Gre-No-Li trio.
When Bonomi was six years old, he fell in Adda River and was about to drown when a 10-year-old boy rescued him. Ironically, his rescuer was Valentino Mazzola - who later became one of the greatest Italian football players and was the captain of the Il Grande Torino team of the 1940s. Mazzola would later die, together with most of the players of Il Grande Torino, in the Superga air disaster.
