* The Decameron (subtitled: Prencipe Galeotto) is a collection of 100 Novellas by Giovanni Boccaccio and written in Italian. The meaning of the 'Decameron' is Greek for "ten" (δέκα déka) and "day. " The 'Decameron' writings begin during the Black Death and leads a group of seven women and three men who flee from plague-ridden Florence to a villa in what was then called 'Fiesole' for two weeks. These works by Boccaccio were considered 'bawdy' stories ... in other words pornography.
