Irma meets best-selling crime novelist Donna Leon, creator of the Brunetti thrillers, to ask why she sets her best-selling books in the dark and secret streets of Venice. The contemporary Casanova scholar Maurice Agosti takes Irma to the sites of some of the great Venetian lover's liaisons. Irma discovers what life is really like for a gondolier and reflects on the story of Venice's Jewish Ghetto in the city where the term was invented. Author and Venetian historian Alessandro Gianatassio takes Irma back in time in the lavish Ducal Palace. Irma also pays a visit to the Guggenheim Museum and Rialto Market.
