SHORT HISTORICAL EXCURSUS ON THE LOCATION YOU WILL SPEND A MAGICAL EVENING

The orchestra performs in a fascinating location: the hall of Prisons’ Palace that is a part of Doge Palace linked by the famous Bridge of Sights. The Doge’s prisons situated on the ground floor, were extremely inhospitable and dark. Here, the living conditions were terrible because of the presence of every type of insects, the air was suffocating, and the environment overcrowded.The most famous guest of this prison was Giacomo Casanova, who was the protagonist of the most fantastical and creative of escapes: having climbed onto the prison roof, Casanova managed to slide down a drain pipe, slip inside the Palace and then persuade someone to open the door, in order for him to then escape calmly on a gondola.
