In 1739 the fifty-year-old Lady Mary Wortley Montagu had made secret plans to start a new life in Venice with her twenty-seven-year-old lover, Francesco Algarotti. But he remained stubbornly absent from the city of his birth. Without him, she immediately fell deeply in love with all things Venetian. Jo Willett has been an award-winning TV drama and comedy producer all her working life & has recently published a biography of ‘The Pioneering Life of Mary Wortley Montagu.’
