Founded in the sixth century, Crema endured a particularly hazardous geographical position in terms of its independence It was no great distance from Milan, and its neighbor to the east, the Serene Republic of Venice, was always pressing to expand its holdings on the mainland In addition the German emperors held the overlordship of the Po Valley and from time to time dominated the political situation Otto of Freising died 1158, for instance, draws attention to Crema's situation in the perpetual struggle between Cremona and Milan Crema was situated just halfway between Cremona and Milan It bore a good deal of the military action, and, as Cremona regularly rejected its demands in litigation for redress and reparations, Crema developed a grudge This was particularly wrenching since Crema was politically subject to Cremona and spiritually subject to its bishop To gain an advantage, the leaders of Cremona urged the Emperor Frederic Barbarossa to destroy Crema in exchange for a considerable sum of money, which would allow him to pursue his ventures in the Po Valley The citizens of Crema therefore threw in their lot with Milan

Crema became subject to the Republic of Venice in September 1512, and the possession was ratified by the Treaty of Blois of 1513 The diocese of Crema was created by splitting off territory that had been part of the Diocese of Lodi of Cremona and of Piacenza
