Quattro Minuti con Casanova: Palazzo Malibran

Okay, I know it looks like I’m standing knee-deep in the Grand Canal to bring you this episode of Quattro Minuti con Casanova, but really, I’m not that dedicated. It’s just a trick of the filming. (Thanks, Jan!)

This episode and the next focus on Casanova’s adolescence and early adulthood, as he learned the ropes from a seasoned nobleman, Senator Malipiero–how to listen, how to serve others, and ultimately how to get the things you want.

But Casanova went a bit too far one day, and betrayed the trust of Senator Malipiero. He was playing doctor with Teresa Imer, who lived nearby and was making the Senator lovesick over her. The Senator wielded a big cane. End of story (or at least this episode).

Sorry for the ambient noise–just pretend you’re enjoying the wash of the Grand Canal on your feet.

The full story is available in Seductive Venice: In Casanova’s Footsteps (known in the Italian edition as Casanova’s Venice: A Walking Guide.)

    And it looks as thought you had a hot day (so standing in the water might have been understandable). But what a story; it is better not to anger one’s mentor.
