Scorzè, terra dell'Acqua e di Grandi Sapori.
As of 2010 Scorzè had an estimated population of 19,798. The streets SR515 and SR245 intersect in the town.
In the Middle Ages, the town was a centre for leather tanning, and the tanners (scorzeri) gave the town its name. It is first mentioned by Pope Eugene III in a Papal bull of 1152. In 1338 it was annexed by Venice, and in 1815 it became part of the Austro-Hungarian Empire.
