Izano (Cremasco: Isàa) is a comune (municipality) in the Province of Cremona in the Italian region of Lombardy, located about 45 kilometres (28 mi) southeast of Milan and about 35 kilometres (22 mi) northwest of Cremona.
The history of Izano has been always connected to that of the nearby, and more powerful, Crema. The first documents mentioning Izano (as Giosano) date from the late 10th century. Later it was probably under the suzerainty of the bishopric of Cremona. Later Izano was a possession of Crema until, in the late 15th century, it was conquered by the Republic of Venice.
