One of her favorite habitats was palazzo in Venice, she brought there a lot of rare animals - panthers, gorillas, pythons, peacocks and albino crows. One of the most memorable masquerades, Casati arranged there and on St. Marks Square. The daughter of a rich count colored her servants with gold paint, she kissed snakes and walked panthers on diamond leashes. At night, the marquise went out for a walk in a fur palantin, dressed on a bare body, accompanied by a high footman and burning torches.
