Decameron by Giovanni Boccaccio

The Black Death is raging in Florence. Ten well-heeled young people flee the city and seek safety in the countryside.

They keep themselves entertained by telling stories. One hundred of them over ten days. Stories of love, romance and sexual adventure.

The ancient and atmospheric Leper Chapel is the perfect setting for Boccaccio’s masterpiece.
