In the past part of the Palace was the terribile Venetian Prisons, where Casanova was imprisoned: he was the only one managed to escape from here!
Nowadays it’s the home of Cultural Association and it’s used for many socialite and cultural events.

The most famous guest of this prison was Giacomo Casanova, who was the protagonist of the most fantastical and creative of escapes: having climbed onto the prison roof, Casanova managed to slide down a drain pipe, slip inside the Palace and then persuade someone to open the door, in order for him to then escape calmly on a gondola.
