Casanova is imagined as a mix of mythology and historical reality and is one of Italy’s and Venice’s most world-famous names. He is the guardian of a timeless myth, living on in lanes and squares as well as in the palazzi and eighteenth-century courts across much of Europe. Although he left a vast collection of literary works, he is mostly remembered as an adventurer and lover; a disrespectful son of the Serenissima. But Casanova ‘the man’ was much more than this.

When moving through the rooms of Palazzo Papafava you will enjoy a first-hand experience of the atmosphere, sounds, settings and costumes that bore witness to the events relating to Casanova the man, and the time in which he lived.
The exhibition will go beyond the myth of Casanova, telling the real story behind the bright lights of eighteenth-century Venice and showing the fragility, full of solitude and insecurity, that makes Casanova an eclectic and complex character even today. Looking at the literature in which he is the central character, in his hand-written documents, and at objects and original clothes of the period, the most significant moments of Giacomo’s life are deduced. The exhibition mixes virtual experiences and immersive surroundings, alternating with interactive exhibits.   

There are also moments of both shared views and private enjoyment, all working together to ensure the visitor a varied, exciting and engaging experience. This is an experience that will show visitors young Casanova and his family of actors, his travels for study and pleasure, and his adventures throughout Europe. They will see the poet and sophisticated writer, the diplomat and astute secret agent. They will also see the women, love and fashion of the eighteenth century, and the myth of the cinema that consecrated his deeds. This story will go to the heart of the life of Casanova the man, beyond the myth.
