Marietta: A Maid of Venice is the story of Zorzi, the foreign servant of a Venetian glass-blower. There are two things he wants; to be allowed to operate a furnace of his own, and to have Marietta, his master's beautiful daughter, for his wife. Both these goals seem impossible, as the trade of glass-blowing is reserved for native Venetians only, and Marietta is engaged to marry Jacopo Contarini, a handsome nobleman.
A good read, though long, with interesting plot twists and various amusing observations on the strange habits of women. It is based on a true story.
