Decameron, Giovanni Boccaccio


One Hundred Tales, One Great Masterpiece
“To have compassion for those who suffer is a human quality which everyone should possess, especially those who have required comfort themselves in the past and have managed to find it in others. ” – Giovanni Boccaccio, The Decameron
The Black Death is upon Europe and the beautiful city of Florence. How can you escape it one must wonder? The 14th-century Italian writer came up with a solution in his masterpiece, The Decameron: story-telling. He gathered seven young women and three young men in a remote villa outside the city with one sole purpose: to tell 100 unique stories about humanity’s great fortunes and misfortunes.
