Quattro Minuti con Casanova: Traghetto at Ca’ Garzoni

S Toma traghetto

This is a lovely story of how Casanova saved a jilted countess from a pimp. The story includes a traghetto, a hooded cloak, malvasia, slippers and gloves, and a bittersweet, secret farewell. I went a bit over four minutes on this one, and the San Tomá traghetto boat arrived near the end of my talk, making my voice a bit hard to hear, but then again, it’s like being in Venice. 🙂

On a side note: This past July when I was last in Venice, Azerbaijan had its Biennale exhibit showing at the building by the traghetto. Check out this mandala that’s inside the building.

You can read a fuller version of the story, with Casanova’s own words, in my book Seductive Venice: In Casanova’s Footsteps.
