In 1349, following a bubonic plague epidemic that killed more than half the population of his native Florence, Italian writer, Giovanni Boccacio, penned his Decameron using the plague as the backdrop for his story. Ten young people flee from Florence to a villa in the hills. There they spend 10 days filled with 10 stories. The storytelling enabled them to escape through the entertainment of the tales. With our modern day quarantine, join this study of Boccacio’s work and be entertained by its stories.
