Corzano is a town and comune in the province of Brescia, in Lombardy, Italy. As of 2011 its population was 1,397.[1]


The name Corzano is derived from the Roman family name Curtius. In the 15th century the Avogadro family built a castle in the village Meano, which is part of the comune. It was part of the Republic of Venice until its dissolution at the end of the 18th century.[2]


Corzano is located at 45°26' North, 10°0' West[3] approximately 100 metres (330 ft) above sea level.[4] The bordering municipalities are Barbariga, Brandico, Comezzano-Cizzago, Dello, Longhena, Pompiano and Trenzano.

Corzano counts the hamlets (frazioni) of Bargnano, Meano and Montegiardino. The last one was an autonomous municipality until 1797.[5]


The 2001 census gives the population as 980 people, composed of 359 families.[6]
