CASANOVA, IL VERO GENTILUOMO.

Tratto da “Di Giacomo Casanova e delle sue Memorie” di Marco Lanza – edizione del 1877 – Orlando Orlandini Editore in Venezia.

"Per la conoscenza che le persone colte hanno fatto di Giacomo Casanova, dimandate loro chi egli sia stato, e vi si risponderà concordemente : un avventuriere. Ei lo fu in vero, e col suo spirito irrequieto, intraprendente, bizzarro, dovea divenirlo nel secolo classico delle avventure, che ebbe Cagliostro. Fu d' altronde un grazioso avventuriere che percorse l' Europa sènza un soldo, spendendo e scialando quando non soffriva penuria, scrivendo quando non faceva all'amore, meditando quando trovavasi disoccupato correndo dietro alle donne, amandole tutte e sempre. Ciò che i moralisti chiamano invariabilmente lussuria, era culto del Bello in Casanova, culto nobile e generoso, origine di grandi cose, sotto qualunque apparenza si manifesti. Generalmente questa passione appartiene alle nature elette e buone, e quelle che non sono buone, lo divengono per essa. Anche dal lato romanzesco adunque le « Memorie » di Casanova riescono ad interessare, con sempre nuove attrattive, insieme ai lettori intelligenti, gli sfaccendati. Libertino ei si mostra (chi vorrebbe negarlo ?) ma è un libertino di buona lega, e le cose più avanzate ci narra con un arguzia, che fa tosto sclamare : chi è senza peccato scagli la prima pietra! Il suo riso non è sguaiato'; lascia sempre indovinare sotto il velame delli versi strani, qualche cosa che non appartiene ai tristi. Le donne gli andavano incontro prima che egli le avesse notate. Vi sono certe donne e certi uomini che si cercano, anzi si sentono reciprocamente ; ciò avviene in modo speciale tra le persone di spirito dei due sessi; le donne poi di tutte le condizioni apprezzano la coltura e il talento, e Casanova ne sovrabbondava ; le donne amano gli originali, ed egli lo era senza dubbio ; le più pudiche hanno un' inclinazione spontanea pei libertini, e tra quelli che si denominano tali, egli non figurava d' essere l' ultimo. Però non si trova mai ch' egli abbia violentato l' onore di una casta donzella; i suoi amori procedono per la via piana, quali si convenivano ad un bell' uomo, fornito di qualità che agivano sulle fantasie ; ad un uomo, che non passava per un luogo senza lasciare una durabile traccia di aneddoti, di commenti, di giudizi d' ogni fatta."

“All these fine acquaintances amongst women who enjoyed the reputation of being high-bred ladies, gave me a very natural desire to shine by my good looks and by the elegance of my dress; but my father confessor, as well as my grandmother, objected very strongly to this feeling of vanity.

“Unfortunately, I indulged in expenses far above my means, owing to my unwillingness to seem poorer than my new friends. I sold or pledged everything I possessed, and I contracted debts which I could not possibly pay.”

“I spent another year in Padua, studying law in which I took the degree of Doctor in my sixteenth year, the subject of my thesis being in the civil law, ‘de testamentis’, and in the canon law, ‘utrum Hebraei possint construere novas synagogas’.”

“This girl (Bettina, abbot Gozzi’s sister n.d.r.) took at once my fancy without my knowing why, and little by little she kindled in my heart the first spark of a passion which, afterwards became in me the ruling one.”

“My progress at school was so rapid during four or five months that the master promoted me to the rank of dux. My province was to examine the lessons of my thirty school-fellows, to correct their mistakes and report to the master with whatever note of blame or of approval I thought they deserved; but my strictness did not last long, for idle boys soon found out the way to enlist my sympathy.”

27/04/2020

“As soon as I was left alone with the Sclavonian woman, she took me up to the garret, where she pointed out my bed in a row with four others, three of which belonged to three young boys of my age, who at that moment were at school, and the fourth to a servant girl whose province it was to watch us and to prevent the many peccadilloes in which school-boys are wont to indulge. After this visit we came downstairs, and I was taken to the garden with permission to walk about until dinner-time.
I felt neither happy nor unhappy; I had nothing to say. I had neither fear nor hope, nor even a feeling of curiosity; I was neither cheerful nor sad.”

We reached Padua... Ottaviani took us at once to the house where I was to board. It was only a few yards from his own residence, at Sainte-Marie d’Advance, in the parish of Saint-Michel, in the house of an old Sclavonian woman, who let the first floor to Signora Mida, wife of a Sclavonian colonel. My small trunk was laid open before the old woman, to whom was handed an inventory of all its contents, together with six sequins for six months paid in advance. For this small sum she undertook to feed me, to keep me clean, and to send me to a day-school. Protesting that it was not enough, she accepted these terms. I was kissed and strongly commanded to be always obedient and docile, and I was left with her.
In this way did my family get rid of me.”

“on the 2nd day of April, 1734, on the very day I had accomplished my ninth year, I was taken to Padua in a ‘burchiello’, along the Brenta Canal. We embarked at ten o’clock in the evening, immediately after supper.
The ‘burchiello’ may be considered a small floating house. There is a large saloon with a smaller cabin at each end, and rooms for servants fore and aft. It is a long square with a roof, and cut on each side by glazed windows with shutters. The voyage takes eight hours.”

“M. Baffo, a man of sublime genius, a most lascivious, yet a great and original poet, was therefore instrumental in bringing about the decision which was then taken to send me to Padua, and to him I am indebted for my life. He died twenty years after, the last of his ancient patrician family, but his poems, although obscene, will give everlasting fame to his name.”

The Memoirs of Jacques Casanova de Seingalt, 1725-1798.

——

Zorzi (Giorgio) Baffo (11 August 1694 - 30 July 1768) was an Italian poet and senator of the Venetian Republic.
Baffo was born in Venice. He was, together with Ruzante, Carlo Goldoni and Berto Barbarani one of the major writers in the Venetian language. He was a prolific author of licentious sonnets.
He died in Venice in 1768 in Palazzo Bellavite.

“At that time my mother had been pregnant for six months, and she was allowed to remain away from the stage until after Easter. Beautiful and young as she was, she declined all the offers of marriage which were made to her, and, placing her trust in Providence, she courageously devoted herself to the task of bringing up her young family.
She considered it a duty to think of me before the others, not so much from a feeling of preference as in consequence of my disease, which had such an effect upon me that it was difficult to know what to do with me.”

09/04/2020

“Six weeks after the above adventure my father was attacked with an abscess in the head which carried him off in a week. Dr. Zambelli first gave him oppilative remedies, and, seeing his mistake, he tried to mend it by administering castoreum, which sent his patient into convulsions and killed him. The abscess broke out through the ear one minute after his death, taking its leave after killing him, as if it had no longer any business with him. My father departed this life in the very prime of his manhood. He was only thirty-six years of age, but he was followed to his grave by the regrets of the public, and more particularly of all the patricians amongst whom he was held as above his profession, not less on account of his gentlemanly behaviour than on account of his extensive knowledge in mechanics.
Two days before his death, feeling that his end was at hand, my father expressed a wish to see us all around his bed, in the presence of his wife and of the Messieurs Grimani, three Venetian noblemen whose protection he wished to entreat in our favour. After giving us his blessing, he requested[…]”

“One day, about the middle of November, I was with my brother Francois, two years younger than I, in my father’s room, watching him attentively as he was working at optics. A large lump of crystal, round and cut into facets, attracted my attention. I took it up, and having brought it near my eyes I was delighted to see that it multiplied objects. The wish to possess myself of it at once got hold of me, and seeing myself unobserved I took my opportunity and hid it in my pocket.
A few minutes after this my father looked about for his crystal, and unable to find it, he concluded that one of us must have taken it.
My brother asserted that he had not touched it, and I, although guilty, said the same; but my father, satisfied that he could not be mistaken, threatened to search us and to thrash the one who had told him a story. I pretended to look for the crystal in every corner of the room, and, watching my opportunity I slyly slipped it in the pocket of my brother’s jacket. At first I was sorry for what I had done, for I might as well have feigned to find the crystal somewhere about the room; but the evil deed was past recall.
... he never forgave me, and has never failed to take his revenge whenever the opportunity offered.”
