Here is a curious item related to Casanova. My friend Marco sent me photos of a small medal cast in silver. At his request, it was commissioned and then created in 1998 by a Dutch association to honor Casanova. Roberto Ruggió designed it. Only 107 of them were made.
One would expect to see Casanova’s portrait on the medal, but no, this is no ordinary creation! The flip side of the medal shows a girl’s navel. Marco asks, “Would a boy’s navel be different?” Maybe we should begin making an investigation into this question.
But why a bellybutton to represent Casanova? Marco did not explain this part to me. So I present the question to you: You may not know the correct answer, but perhaps you can provide a creative suggestion! I’ll share these ideas with Marco to see if any of you guess correctly.
