The Decameron is a text that has well and truly influenced all sorts of literature. I’m going recommend you head right to The Project section and then click About the Project, not only will it fill you in on what happens in The Decameron, who wrote it, why it is important, it will also tell you what the project is about and how the site came into fruition.
From that page, you can navigate using the side menu to check out the information on the site. Go to Boccaccio to learn more about the author, or go to the Arts or Maps section to check out interesting art and maps from the time or from different versions of the text.
Or if you’re a teacher, head to Pedagogy, and learn how you can teach this text in your class along with activities and modules!
This is a really awesome way to look at such an incredibly influential text; I hope you’ll check it out today!
