In 1233 Artogne became property of the Brusati family.

In 1331 Zanone called "Mastaio" and Ziliolo Federici, sons of Bojaco of Gorzone, bought all the property that Girardo Brusati owned in the land of Artogne.

Artogne is indicated on the 1508 map of Valle Camonica designed by Leonardo da Vinci, which is kept at the Royal Library of Windsor, in Great Britain.

In 1912 a severe flood hit the village.

In 1927 the town merged with that of Pian Camuno, creating the town of Pian d'Artogne. This was split again in 1957.

On July 26, 1944 Battista Pedersoli, Giacomo Marioli and Antonio Cotti Cottiniare were killed at the Cascina Campelli by nazi-fascists.
