A friend recently sent me this photo. I knew about this general location, where Casanova aided Bragadin after the party, but I didn’t know that someone had found the precise site of the former caffe. Or did they? Is this sign an approximation? And who put up this sign? A couple friends of mine in Venice have been trying to get permission to mark more Casanova sites and have been refused. So how did this one come to be there?
Does anyone have more info on this? If you’re in Venice, can you go to this place and ask the local shop owners if they know anything else?
And by the way, don’t you love that they used the word “maecenas”?? I’m not going to define that right now, because I know I have a few followers who will have a lot of fun explaining the reference. 🙂
