Rumor has it that the owner bought the house from the heirs of Giacomo Casanova, Italian writer and adventurer, born in the Republic of Venice in the 18th century. Casanova traveled the world in search of adventure and art, and discovered the most authentic and charming places on the planet.
Once Giocomo Casanova came to Brazil on a diplomatic mission and was enchanted by the beauty and bohemian life of the Marvelous City. In Rio, Casanova knew happiness and found true love, a wild, beautiful and intelligent woman, daughter of caiçaras caught the heart of the adventurer.
Love blossomed on the edge of the Lagoon, and the family grew up on the outskirts of Ilha da Gigóia, becoming some of the first inhabitants of the region.
Casanova baptized the region of Veneza Carioca and since then the region has become one of the most romantic places in Rio de Janeiro.
