A double event, a unique and unrepeatable emotion.

Live a day, from dawn to night, of a Venetian courtesan, who will dance, have fun, love in the midst of a sea of ​​crystals and sensual reflections. The courtesans, charming and lewd women were not only prostitutes, but sometimes women of power, who conditioned the political and economic life of the Serenissima. Veronica Franco, the most famous of the courtesans, collected among her lovers Jacopo Robusti, called Tintoretto and more than one doge whom we will not mention for historical confidentiality.

It will not be a simple party, nor a theater show.
The protagonists will be the guests and only them.


The life of a courtesan in every moment: the awakening, the make-up, the dressing, the market, the dances, the game, the eros. You will gamble at the "Casin dei Nobili", winning new emotions and dancing all together, from the Minuet to the wild dance music after dinner, guided by skilled masters and bewitching handmaids.

No plans, no ladders, only freedom.

Freedom, fun for everyone: "semel in anno licet insanire", was the motto of the Serenissima.
Behind the mask, a nobleman or a farmer can hide. But often deceptions, disguises will go further. Watch out ladies and knights, watch out ...
