  • Venice has always been a place collected, whose stories from a real base often have inspired famous literary works, as in the case of Othello by Shakespeare. Focus of tragedy of jealousy is a real Venetian character of the 16th century, the noble Nicholas Contarini or the equally noble Cristoforo Moro already transfigured into a tragedy of ferrarese Giraldi, where English would have inspired. In fact plausibie identify the protagonist "Moor of Venice" with the patrician Cristoforo Moro, shipped to Cyprus and Crete as a Lieutenant, left during the enterprise by his wife who was the daughter of the "White Devil" from which easily yields Des-Demona! Brown also could be the alliteration of a family that had rent palazzo Civran and ... we arrived at the location of Othello! In fact, the palazzo Civran standing on the right side of the Campo dei Carmini in Dorsoduro, was inhabited by the Moro; featuring a corner of 15th century sculpture depicting a page holding a shield with the arms of the Civran, facing the Canal. Of course in Venice could not miss the Desdemona's house located not far from health, in palazzo Contarini Fasan which overlooking the Grand Canal is one of the richest and most admired Venetian-Gothic style buildings.
