Quattro Minuti con Casanova–Campo SS Giovanni e Paolo

It’s kind of funny to send this link now, considering that I filmed it in February when I was all bundled up for winter weather. By this time next week, I’ll be in Venice again, hopefully filming more Quatto Minuti episodes, but wearing far fewer clothes!

Here I take you to one of Casanova’s favorite waiting spots, where he met his lover, MM (considered by most scholars to be Marina Morosini), a nun at a convent on Murano. She would disguise herself and be rowed over by gondola to meet Casanova for a night in the city. But that’s enough of a teaser–view the video for all the juicy details, including a description of what Marina wore!

Or read even more details in Seductive Venice: In Casanova’s Footsteps, even better than a video because I quote Casanova himself as he describes beautiful Marina and his anticipation as he waits for her.

By the way, can you guess which couple are my friends in the background?

    Darn. Will have to watch this on the PC. I seem to have lost my ability to watch videos on my laptop.
