Prior to 2001 Baranzate was a frazione of the comune of Bollate. It was established as a comune in its own right in November of that year by the promulgation of a regional law. In 2003 this law was declared unconstitutional by the Constitutional Court of Italy, the establishment of the new comune was annulled and Barazate became once more a frazione of Bollate. In May 2004 a new regional law re-established the Comune of Baranzate.
