To commemorate C’s birthday, here’s a Quattro Minuti con Casanova (okay, quattro e mezzo minuti) that tells the story of C’s birthplace. Was he born on the Calle Malipiero as the plaque on that street contends? Or around the corner at his grandmother’s house on Calle de le Muneghe? Watch this episode for some details, or read the fuller story in Seductive Venice: In Casanova’s Footsteps.

We are just a few years away from Casanova’s 300th birthday, in 2025. What will you do to celebrate? I think you should start planning now, and make it a really great party.

Thanks to my friend Adriano for filming this episode, on a particularly hot day.
