Quattro Minuti con Casanova–Rio Tera Barba Frutariol

Casanova may be known as the great lover, but doesn’t everyone have to start somewhere? There was once a time when he didn’t even know how to walk arm in arm with a woman, when he tickled her armpit by accident, as you’ll learn in the following video:

In the summer of 2014 I spent five and a half weeks in Venice and made a bunch more videos regarding Casanova sites, all from my book Seductive Venice: In Casanova’s Footsteps. Here you’ll hear about Casanova’s encounter with a Count and his daughter, but don’t count on  it ending happily!

    There is a different explanation of the meaning of Rio Terá to be found here: http://iamnotmakingthisup.net/date/2013/12/ the second one down, 11 December, which points out that ‘terá’ is a Venetian word meaning ‘filled in with earth’.

  2. Thanks for sharing this post and this information, Bert. I appreciate learning new things!

    Interesting tidbit (but unfortunate that you had an annoying clapper in the background)
