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?
