DANDOLO PALACE, THE RIDOTTO HALLS
The palace of the noble Dandolo was the first place to accomodate the "Ridotto", public gaming rooms from 1638 till 1774. It used to be open
during Carnival, which lasted several months, and during that time Giacomo Casanova considered the Ridotto as the stage setting and
backdrop for his conquests.
