    Screen Shot 2015-04-04 at 9.21.59 AMThe last time we went to Venice, we had a chance to talk to travel writer, blogger, and Venice resident Erla Zwingle, whose blog Venice: I Am Not Making This Up gives a non-native resident’s loving, wry, frustrated, and melancholy view of this beautiful city, its residents, and its perpetual mismanagement. In one of her recent posts, she discusses the filming of yet another Casanova film.  You can see photographs of the movie production process in her blog post The Constant Casanova. Since discussing media representations of Venice is part of our coursework, I encourage you to go check out her post (and subscribe to her blog; it’s wonderful) as you gear up to take this class in Spring 2016! Maybe the  movie will be out by then and we can all take a “field trip” together to see it!
