Venice in the eighteenth century. The embittered Giacomo Casanova (Tony Curtis), the great lover of all, has been behind bars for a long time. The courageous intervention of one of his old flames, Duchess Francesca di Cornaro (Marisa Mell) secures his escape—but his virility has run dry. Fittingly, he meets the young pickpocket Giacomino (likewise Tony Curtis), who is his spitting image and full of lifeblood. They get together to save the city from ruin with a lot of amore and physical effort.
