Camerata Cornello (Bergamasque: Camerada) is a comune (municipality) in the Province of Bergamo in the Italian region of Lombardy, located about 60 km (37 mi) northeast of Milan and about 20 km (12 mi) north of Bergamo.

Camerata Cornello borders the following municipalities: Cassiglio, Lenna, Piazza Brembana, San Giovanni Bianco, Taleggio.

The community was the original home of Omodeo Tasso, the late-13th Century founder of the Princely House of Thurn and Taxis.[2] On 14 July 1914, Simone Pianetti shot seven local burghers and fled into the mountains.
