What is the story behind Casanova’s last name? “Casanova” means “new house,” and today’s blog post is about the street of the new houses, which is just a coincidence. Will this video give you any answers about etymology? Probably not, but I hope you will find it interesting nonetheless!
We tend to think of Casanova as a great seducer, and many people don’t realize he was many other things and had many other talents. Today’s video will tell you a bit about his translation skills.
Thanks to the nice young couple who filmed me on this day last summer. We did not have a language in common, but pantomime and the fact that “video” is understood in many languages saved the day. I didn’t quite make it to “quattro minuti” on this one because I rushed a bit so I didn’t keep these kind folks from their sightseeing.
