Scorzè

Description

For some historians, the town's name refers to the traditional leather tanning, once one of widely practiced activities in the area, while another school of thought, however, attests that it honors the family of Scorzedo, linked to the bishop of Treviso. It is a municipality in the province of Venice, located in a flat area rich of rivers and springs.
Paleo Venetian populations inhabited the region since ancient times, while it was later colonized by the Romans and was subjected to the Municipium of Altino. After the Fall of the Roman Empire, the territories were invaded by the Barbarians, and became part of the Lombard Kingdom. During the Middle Ages it was ceded to the Bishops of Treviso, who assigned the rule to more than one local lord. From the XIII century, throughout the Middle Ages, Scorzé submitted the domain of the Ezzelini, the Del Camino and the Della Scala. After a period of Hungarian invasion, finally, the territory experienced a period of prosperity under the domain of the Serenissima Republic of Venice. After the conquest by Napoleon, it became part of the Austrian Empire and finally was assigned to the Kingdom of Italy.
