History[edit]

Already populated in ancient Roman times, in the Middle Ages the area of Cavenago d'Adda belonged to the bishop of Lodi (10th century), and was later a fief of the family of Fissiraga (1297–1482), the Bocconi of Mozzanica, and finally of the Cavenaghi Clerici. It included the population of Persia, now a frazione of Casaletto Ceredano.

In the Napoleonic era (1809–16) it was attached to the municipality of Robecco, which however became again independent after the constitution of the Kingdom of Lombardy-Venetia. In 1863 it assumed the official name of Cavenago Cavenago d'Adda, to distinguish itself from Cavenago of Brianza.

In 1869 the municipality of Cavenago d'Adda received the territories of the former communes of Caviaga and Soltarico. After World War II, in the hamlet of Caviaga AGIP discovered large reserves of natural gas.
