Trivia
When Casanova is running away from the Inquisition in the opening scene he jumps through a window and into the University of Venice. The University of Venice never existed and the building he jumps into is in fact the "Teatro Olimpico", one of the first Renaissance theaters 140 kilometers away from Venice.

Some plot elements recall William Shakespeare play The Merchant of Venice, especially Francesca Bruni's disguising as a man in order to take part in a legal council. This movie also featured Jeremy Irons who appeared in The Merchant of Venice (2004).

Despite the fact that this was filmed in Super 35, "Filmed in Panavision" is listed in the end credits.

Goofs
During the first duel, right before Francesca is unmasked, she goes from hat on, to hat fallen off, to hat back on within the space of a second.

While Francesca is fencing with a guard during the climatic escape sequence, Victoria is seen in the background dueling with another guard, but in the very next shot, she's just running up to engage him.
Share this
The "university auditorium" where Casanova first sees Francesca Bruni is not a building in Venice, but the Teatro Olimpico in Vicenza, a town approx. 45 minutes west of Venice.
