Mazzorbo was founded by people from di Altino escaping from Attila and was previously named Majurbium (the "biggest city").
Much evidence can be found of its days of splendour, when it was in competition with Torcello for its riches and the beauty of its houses.
Nowadays it is considered the island of Burano's "residential area", to which it is connected by a bridge.

 Mazzorbo - Venice for Visitors
The villas, gardens, and churches of earlier centuries are mostly gone, although the tower of the medieval Chiesa di Santa Caterina continues to dominate the bucolic landscape.
The most interesting sight on Mazzorbo, at least for fans of architecture and urban planning, is the government-assisted "case soziale" housing project designed by Giancarlo De Carlo.
The houses, which are painted in Buranese colors, were built from 1979 to 1986.

Or if the borin blows hard from the east, the pigeons sit in long rows under the eaves of the Procuratie; their necks drawn into their shoulders, and the neck feathers ruffled round their heads, till they have lost all shape, and look like a row of slate-coloured cannon balls.
They have even found their way to Malamocco and Mazzorbo; so that all Venice in the sea owns and protects its sacred bird.
They are boundlessly greedy, and will stuff themselves till they can hardly walk, and the little red feet stagger under the loaded crop.

Fondata nel VI secolo, l'isola ebbe una crescita lenta a causa della vicinanza di Mazzorbo e Torcello, tanto che solo nel XIII secolo vi comparvero i primi complessi religiosi.
Il centro abitato è celebre anche per le sue case policrome: è infatti abitudine degli abitanti dipingere la propria abitazione con colori molto vivaci e in contrasto con quelli delle case limitrofe.

Founded in the 6th century, the island developed slowly as it is near Mazzorbo and Torcello, and the first religious buildings were built only in the 13th century.

Its canals are lined, not with masonry, but with sloping banks of green; and picturesque bits of ruined arches, and solitary marble columns lying half hidden in the luxuriant grass, show that Mazzorbo was once a city, though nature and cabbages have now reclaimed it.
