NEW OPENING

A multimedia and high-tech experience is about to open in Venice. This attraction is dedicated to Giacomo Casanova and is set to launch on his birthday (2 April 1725) within the Fifteenth-century Palazzo Pesaro Papafava

Giacomo Casanova

A philanderer, libertine, writer and adventurer. Not many people know that Giacomo Casanova was also an alchemist, a diplomat, a philosopher and even a secret agent.

From 2 April, following the opening of the Casanova Museum & Experience, dedicated to the life of this polymath, visitors can discover the lesser known aspects of his personality. This is not a traditional museum with relics, artifacts and memorabilia arranged in chronological order; the Casanova Museum & Experience focuses on the Casanova ‘Experience’ highlighting the innovative approach of this brand new and unusual place of cultural learning. The space has not been conceived as a traditional museum but as a multi-media and emotional experience, designed to allow visitors to relive the atmosphere of 18th-century Venice. The exhibition ends in the room which was possibly one of the most representative of Casanova’s life: the bedroom. Here, amidst silks and damasks, visitors can admire a real 18th-century alcove.
