Did Giacomo Casanova believe in love at first sight? Most assuredly. Often, though, he found a woman unattractive at first only to fall in love after she proved herself intelligent and witty. While he made little distinction between physical love and emotional attachment, he devoted most of his energy to the pursuit of love, or at least women to love. This picture is of The Bragadin Palace as it was known in his day. Now a hotel. Did he once look out one of those windows and watch lovelies walk by?
