On the basis of the main studies and of the primary sources (as the Diary of the Augustinian friar B.N. Zucchi), in the present essay is examined the historical event of the little town of Crema, a dominion of the Venetian Republic from 1449 till 1797, during the first half of the 18th century, dramatically touched by the Wars of Succession. Crema, small military garrison of secondary rank, keeps, as the dominant Venetian Government, an armed neutrality, among the powerful belligerent neighbours (Hapsburgs, Bourbon, Savoy). On the social-political plan a patrician oligarchy, jealous of its privileges, dominates a population accustomed (and resigned) to the recurring food lacks and to the slow and cyclic rhythms of the religious and agricultural life, except rare moments of high tension as the popular tumults in 1750, crushed by the government by three sentences to death.
