When I think of Venice as she was in 1782, I think of a hundred thousand souls all devoted to pleasure.
Souls like that become insubstantial and faintly luminous.
You see, we were in the phosphorescent stage of decay... Richly imagined and as irresistible as its magical setting, Carnevale evokes the three great loves of the painter Cecilia Cornaro: Casanova, Byron and La Serenissima herself.
