Francesco Scipione Fapanni wrote of Castellana road as "The Beautiful Castellana", and Scorzé is located along this ancient road. At the town center one finds the original homestead of one of the most powerful Venetian families, direct descendents of Doge Giovanni Soranzo, elected to his august office in 1312. Doge Soranzo was known as having the Midas touch, having recognized the importance of Venice as a maritime superpower, creating the legendary Arsenal of whom Dante wrote in his Commedia. Today the Villa is a three-story palace. Originally a sixteenth century building, built on or elaborated from an earlier edifice: two different cycles of Affreschi" support this theory. During the second half of eighteenth century, Andrea Zorzi, the famous Architect, was called to amplify the Villa and established its neoclassical identity, evidenced by the center hall grand staircase, corinthian columns, pilaster and "stucchi". In early nineteenth century, Conte Tommaso Mocenigo Soranzo commissioned to Giuseppe Jappelli, the Architect creator of Caffé Pedrocchi in Padua, with the creation of an English Garden. As the century came to end, Countess Alba Mocenigo Soranzo married Count Antonio Conestabile della Staffa. During the first half of our century, the Villa endured numerous destructive interventions and fell into disrepair until, in 1960 it was restored to becoming a Hotel. Mario Martinelli senior, then operating his restaurant greatly favoured by Ernest Hemingway in Cortina d'Ampezzo, found himself in the neighbourhood of Villa Soranzo Conestabile, he fell in love with it. He had to have it ! Since then, with his grand children and his daughter-in-law Mrs. Bruna, who have kept the family tradition alive, courteous hospitality and polished style is the rule at this charming Hotel. A most convenient network of public transportation at a stone throw of the Hotel gates links Scorzé to Venice, Treviso, Padua. At brief driving distance are also word class golf facilities.
