Daniele Scarpa (born January 3, 1964 in Venice) is an Italian sprint canoer who competed from the mid-1980s to 1997. Competing in four Summer Olympics, he won two medals at Atlanta in 1996 with a gold in the K-2 1000 m and a silver in the K-2 500 m events.

Scarpa also won five medals at the ICF Canoe Sprint World Championships with two golds (K-2 500 m and K-2 1000 m: both 1995), two silvers (K-2 1000 m: 1993, 1994), and a bronze (K-2 10000 m: 1985).

He quit the national team in 1997 to what he claimed was widespread doping. Scarpa also was elected to the local government as a member of the Greens Party.

Scarpa married the paralympian archer Sandra Truccolo in 2007 and they offer canoeing courses.[1]
