We are color and shadow: a break out for Giacomo Casanova
Guided visit with theatrical performance to the exhibition "I colori della Serenissima. Pittura veneta del Settecento in Trentino" (The colours of the Serenissima. Venetian painting of the eighteenth century in Trentino)
Guided visit with theatrical performance to the exhibition I colori della Serenissima. Pittura veneta del Settecento in Trentino (The colours of the Serenissima. Venetian painting of the eighteenth century in Trentino). The visit, written by Guido Laino and produced by il Funambolo, in collaboration with the Buonconsiglio Castle and the Trentino Theatre Coordination, is starring Giacomo Casanova.
Having escaped from the dreadful Piombi prisons in Venice in 1756, Casanova began a long, tireless wandering throughout Europe. Upon his return to Italy (but not in Venice) in 1760, we can imagine him passing through the Prince-Bishopric of Trento with the idea of enacting a plan that should allow him to be pardoned by the Inquisition Tribunal of the Serenissima, which also seeks him out in foreign lands to arrest him.
There will be no shortage, and it could not be otherwise, of encounters and games of seduction, which the audience will enjoy in relation to the paintings exhibited in the museum. In this way, the discovery of the works of the Venetian Eighteenth Century in the rooms of the castle will be accompanied and told in a transversal way, with the hypothetical events of one of the most famous - as well as paradigmatic - figures of the final act of the history of the Serenissima.
Siamo colore e ombra: una fuga per Giacomo Casanova (We are color and shadow: a break out for Giacomo Casanova) was written by Guido Laino in collaboration with the Museum’s office for educational activities.
On stage, in addition to the author Beatrice Festi, Marta Marchi and Giacomo Santi.
