Favaro VenetoThe township has has its origins in the Middle and, until its expansion in the twentieth century, Favaro Veneto was a small village with a predominantly agricultural economy. Its name is derived from the likely existence of a renowned blacksmith shop (“favaro” in the Venetian dialect means "blacksmith").

Originally characterized by the presence of many forests and wetlands that connected the township to the Laguna Veneta, the area of Favaro Veneto was made totally cultivable only with the engineering work carried out by the Venetian Republic in the sixteenth century. The remediation that took place between the nineteenth and the twentieth century contributed to the urban sprawl significantly.

Favaro Veneto was Municipal Deputation of the City of Venice from 1816 to 1866 (under the Emperor of Austria), then was Common Council (under the Kingdom of Italy), administering the nearby localities until 1926, when the townshio was merged with the Municipality of Venice by Decree-Law (OJ No. 183, 09.08.1926, 15.07.1926 RD No. 1317).
