Known as one of the eminent travelers of the 18th century, Giacomo Casanova visited much of Europe and wrote one of the era’s most important chronicles, as much a travel account as an autobiography. Exploring his interactions with people in the many cities he visited and on the roads reveals insights into both the man and his times. How do we, of other places and times, expand our understanding of his contributions? Join us in Venice, Casanova’s birthplace and heart-home, to explore the impact of place and time on Casanova’s identity, writing, and ideas.
This symposium aims to bring together anyone interested in the study of Casanova’s life and letters. A rich variety of participants will engender rich discussion and invite new ideas and perspectives. On offer will be events both academic as well as popular.
