A background on the Decameron...
“In the face of the Black Death, the pandemic that ravaged 14th-century Europe, Giovanni Boccaccio wrote at the time, “all the wisdom and ingenuity of man were unavailing.” Well, maybe not all: Boccaccio’s masterpiece “The Decameron” imagines 10 young people fleeing the plague-swept city of Florence for the relative safety of the countryside, where their pastimes include telling 100 stories, including innuendo-threaded romps, moral parables and tragic romances."
