A village of ancient origins.
Cremia is formed by different hamlets which go up from the lakeside (hamlet S. Vito( to the slopes of Mount Bregagno.
The first settlements we are sure of were in Roman times; as is demonstrated by archacological finds from that era.
It went from Ludovico il Moro to Lucrezia Crivelli; who joined it with the feud of Nesso. In 1.522 it passed on to Gian Giacomo Medici and, in 1.579, it became part of the feud of the Tre Pievi when it was passed from Philip II to Cardinal Tolomeo Galli.
