In October 1595, Giuseppe Beltrame was hauled before the elders of Venice, after falling out with a pretty actress named Giulia. Witnesses had observed Beltrame cursing at and abusing Giulia. He also publicly suggested that the young noblemen interested in Giulia were his sexual playthings, declaring that he had:
“…put it up the asses of the most excellent nobles who favoured the young woman [Giulia].”
Beltrame was banned from Venice for three years.
