An unusual itinerary between theatrical literature and curious tales of Venice in the 18th Century. We visit Ca’ Centani, the Gothic palace where the great Venetian playwright Carlo Goldoni grew up, in the district of San Polo. His birthplace houses now an interesting museum dedicated to Carlo Goldoni, giving an idea of life in Venice in the 18th Century with an intact puppet theatre with several puppets, pieces of furniture, clothing and masks.
