I have a newish Campy Italian square taper bottom bracket in my Ciocc and Shimano 600 cranks attached and there is a lot of creaking going on. I thought the two would be compatible but when I look at the Campy square taper, it is slightly different than the Shimano square taper, is this likely the cause of the creak? If so, is there a solution to this problem? Thanks!

Shimano is not compatible with campy bb's, vice versa. Can't help you with the creaking though.
