Quattro Minuti con Casanova: Campo Manin

La Cavamacchia was a well-known courtesan in Casanova’s time. Hear part of her story here, on this episode of Quattro Minuti con Casanova, as I stand before the house of Signor Piai in Campo Manin. Between Casanova and La Cavamacchia there were flirtations, insults, and even, later some slaps (but that’s a different video!) In this story, learn about her lovers, her failed singing attempt, and the insults she traded with Casanova–not one of his better exchanges with a beautiful woman.

And here’s a good shot of Campo Manin, from further back, to give you a better perspective of where I’m standing.

    One learns not to get on Caasanova’s snarky side. But she sounds like a survivor.
