The Casanova Redemption
Casanova began planning his escape almost immediately, even though no prisoner had ever escaped from The Leads before. While exercising in the garret next door to his cell, he found an iron bolt and a piece of marble, which he used as a whetstone to sharpen the bolt. He tried to break through the floor into the room beneath but he was moved to a better cell, with windows and a view of the lagoon before he could complete his plan. The hole under the bed was discovered and he was placed under constant surveillance. Unfazed, he used a sharpened fingernail and mulberry juice as ink to correspond with the prisoner in the next cell. He convinced him to do all the dirty work by breaking through the ceiling of their adjoining cells. He even had his warder carry the necessary tool, hidden in a Bible atop of which he had placed a dish of hot buttery pasta.
