This will be just the begging of a lovely and as well charming journey which will last for the whole night, hand by hand, along Casanova’s love experiences…
Atelier Marega is calling you to take part to this extraordinary masked ball’s adventure: are you ready?
The theme chosen for this year is the Love in the fifty and more ways in which it could be experienced. On February 6th, 2016, the night of the last Saturday of Carnival, Casanova will lead you to what promises to be a magical journey of discovery of love in its most varied facets, love sweet and tender, passionate, love for the game and for good food, love and pains of love, in short, love for life.
The noble Casanova was a man of great culture: he devoted himself to a military career, he was a poet and biographer but, above all, he was a man of love. He succeeded in making love the true essence of his life. He loved many women and all, without any exception, were in love with him and he sincerely loved each of them back. As Giacomo Casanova himself wrote in his memoirs.. “Love, a gentle bitterness”.
And who then, if not Giacomo Casanova, could join us in this adventure so sweet and inviting. Fifty Shades of Casanova Grand Ball will be held February 6th, 2016 in the majestic and picturesque setting of the noble Venetian Palace Ca’ Zeno, in proximity to the Basilica dei Frari.

This will be just the beginning of a sweet and attractive promenade that will last all the night, hand in hand along the silky way of love of Casanova.
