Overview

Decameron - Terza Giornata [Decameron - Third Day]
by Giovanni Boccaccio

Decameron is a medieval allegory and masterpiece by Giovanni Boccaccio, which consists in 100 tales by ten young people, three noblemen and seven ladies, in ten days. The story is set in Florence, Italy, during the time of Black Death. The young people leave the plague-ridden Florence to go to a villa in the countryside for two weeks, and entertain themselves with the stories. Although the background is grim, the stories are nothing but.

About The Bilingual Edition
Project Bilingual (A division of Wolf Pup Books) is a continuing project making available great original Italian writers' texts along with their English translation. This edition, which offers after every original language paragraph its translation, makes both grammar and vocabulary checks as painless as possible. Idiomatic forms that could be overlooked can be easily detected.
Furthermore, large paragraphs have been broken down to much smaller units so that the check is as effortless as possible. We do hope that by reading Italian writers that defined the language itself or whose work permeated the Italian culture, you will be able to get the maximum benefit from this language series. Although this edition is not a replacement for traditional methods of learning language, it is a very powerful tool to speed up the process once you have attained the intermediate level and beyond.

Meet the Author

Giovanni Boccaccio (1313 – 21 December 1375) was an Italian author and poet. He began writing in Naples. That is where he fell in love with the Fiammetta that he made famous in his work. Most of his Il Filostrato, which treats Troilus and Cressida’s love, has been translated by Chaucer. In 1358 he completed his great work, Decameron. Bocaccio, along with Petrarch, who was his friend, were important Renaissance humanists. Boccaccio is particularly notable for his dialogue, of which it has been said that it surpasses in verisimilitude all of his contemporaries.
