Albairate is first mentioned in documents in 1054, as a fief of the Milanese monastery of San Vittore, as well as having property attributable to Milanese noble families. During the 13th century, the process of the town being released from vassalage and instituted as a proper rural comune took place. It later passed, along with the rest of Milanese territory, under the rule of the Visconti and then the Sforza.
