7328 Casanova           Discovered 1984 Sept. 20 by A. Mrkos at Klet.
Giovanni Giacomo Casanova (1725-1798) was a writer, spy and diplomat, the prince of Italian adventurers. His autobiography Histoire de ma vie established his reputation as an archetypal seducer of women. He spent his final years in Bohemia as librarian in the château of Dux, now Duchcov. The name was suggested by M. Tichy.
