Dino Speaks

Recently I received this email from someone who has spent many years reading and researching Casanova and the places he lived. Here are the kind words he sent me (and he granted me permission to share them here):

“With great pleasure I’ve read your book Seductive Venice: In Casanova’s Footsteps.

For many years I’ve been a passionate reader of  Casanova’s Memoirs and of everything concerning the world of the Venetian adventurer. Your book is one of those that makes my reading more complete.

Places combined with time possess a very attractive power. Reading about Casanovian places constitute in the mind of the reader a link with the 18th century. And that is what happens constantly in your book.

I’m also agreeably surprised by the completeness of your work. I‘ve read books such as Sui passi di Casanova a Venezia, but they are far less complete.

Furthermore you possess the rare ability of giving good summaries of the episodes in the Memoirs. Casanova has a very dense style full of information. To summarize all these different episodes and to relate them to the places is not an easy task.

So, thank you and I hope that you keep continuing wrtitng on Casanova.

Dino”

    What beautiful and accurate words!! I must agree with him when he says “Places combined with time possess a very attractive power. Reading about Casanovian places constitute in the mind of the reader a link with the 18th century. And that is what happens constantly in your book.” I really felt like he could pop out from around any given corner and whisk me off to some illicit alcove. Very happy that you are receiving the accolades you deserve!!
