Conversations in Bolzano
publisher: Querido, Amsterdam, 2004
translation: George Szirtes
|Shaking off the enforced solitude, Casanova makes his way to Bolzano - the small village where he was dealt a cruel hand. A place full of memories, Bolzano was the scene of a moonlit duel fought with the Duke of Parma when Casanova and he were both in pursuit of the beguiling Francesca. The quest was lost and Casanova was left|| with three scars above his heart and one option: he could live, but only on the condition he never saw Francesca again. But now Casanova is back having secured a loan from an old friend, and is determined to win this time whilst the Duke has an offer Casanova simply cannot refuse and that just might spell his undoing.
