In the last few weeks we’ve seen so many images of Venice’s streets submerged under far too much water. As a small antidote, here is a video from a couple summers ago when I visited one of the streets where Casanova had lived. In this case, he shared a rented room with his brother Francesco. I even reveal the secret of Francesco’s possible real father.
Enjoy the locals who added their own greeting about a minute into this video. As I type this during a cold winter night, it’s hard to imagine this hot and humid day when I filmed this video!
In the video I mention that the Calle del Carbon begins at the Riva del Carbon, which stretches along the Grand Canal to the Rialto Bridge. You can just see this riva past the buildings in the following photo.
