  9. Giovanni Boccaccio Trivia


Boccaccio was a 14th century Italian writer, known for the fact that he wrote in the Italian vernacular (as well as the more widely used Latin), and used realistic rather than conventional dialogue. He is probably most familiar as the author of "The Decameron", a collection of 100 stories presented as being told by a group of three men and seven women holed up in a suburban villa near Florence to stay secure from the Plague.
