It’s 1348 and the Black Death is ravaging the city of Florence. Seven young ladies and three young men escaping the terrible plague, take refuge in a country villa, where they pass the time dancing, singing and telling stories. This is the ideal frame of the one hundred tales wich made up the “Decameron”, told in ten days by the ten young Florentines. In this book we have three amusing short stories from the great work by Giovanni Boccaccio. Fully illustrated.
