Il libro narra di un gruppo di giovani, sette donne e tre uomini, che trattenendosi fuori città per dieci giorni (come descrive il titolo), per sfuggire alla peste nera, che imperversava in quel periodo a Firenze, raccontano a turno delle novelle di taglio spesso umoristico e con frequenti richiami all'erotismo bucolico del tempo. Per quest'ultimo aspetto, il libro fu tacciato di immoralità o di scandalo, e fu in molte epoche censurato o comunque non adeguatamente considerato nella storia della letteratura.

È il 1348: mentre la peste infuria a Firenze, dieci giovani si rifugiano in campagna e per passare piacevolmente il tempo si raccontano per dieci giornate una novella ciascuno. Questa la nota "cornice" che racchiude la più celebre raccolta di novelle della letteratura europea: un capolavoro che ancora affascina per la pluralità dei toni, per la capacità di dipingere l'infinita varietà della vita.

Inspired by the works of Italian medieval writer/poet Boccaccio (the Decameron), Federico Fellini, Luchino Visconti, and Vittorio de Sica each directed a short starring Anita Ekberg, Romy Schneider, and Sophia Loren, respectively; Italian soundtrack heavyweights Nino Rota and Armando Trovajoli provided the necessary musical accompaniment. The result was the film Boccaccio 70 and music that frames a kaleidoscope of styles with dramatic panache. Trovajoli, in particular, mixes it up with cha-cha-chas, march pieces, waltzes, circus themes, and jazz – the highlight, though, is his Latin vocal feature, "Soldi! Soldi! Soldi!," sung by a surprisingly effective Loren. Unlike Trovajoli, Rota doesn't focus on one style per piece, but instead fills his symphonic-worthy sides with a seamless blend of many of the same styles, peppering the landscape with trademark doses of pipe-organ moodiness, can-can rhythms, and dusky string passages. And as far as jazz goes, Rota furnishes the Visconti segment with some very worthy combo ballads redolent of Miles Davis' own soundtrack venture, Ascenseur Pour L'Echafaud.

By pretending to be stupid and mute, an over-eager stud becomes the gardener at a 17th-century school for young virgins in The Head Mistress. Based on two stories from Giovanni Boccaccio's The Decameron and starring nudie-queen Marsha Jordan, The Head Mistress comes complete with sex, violence, and - believe it or not - a man-killing, woman-fondling plant.

After having revisited Dante's "Divine Comedy" ala Progressive rock, Finnish fanzine Colossus and French label Musea dig deeper into Italian literature of the Renaissance with another classic: Giovanni Boccaccio's "Decameron". Many bands (Nexus, Phideaux, Daal, The Samurai of Prog, Jukka Kulju, Senogul and others) worked hard on that beutiful four-CDs album, worth listening. Escape from the pest of today's mainstream music, and join the (musical) paradise on earth promised by Decameron!

In the early 1970s, the great Italian poet, philosopher, and filmmaker Pier Paolo Pasolini brought to the screen a trio of masterpieces of medieval literature—Giovanni Boccaccio’s The Decameron, Geoffrey Chaucer’s The Canterbury Tales, and The Thousand and One Nights (often known as The Arabian Nights)—and in doing so created his most uninhibited and extravagant work. In this brazen and bawdy triptych, the director set out to challenge modern consumer culture and celebrate the uncorrupted human body, while commenting on contemporary sexual and religious mores and hypocrisies. Filled with scatological humor and a rough-hewn sensuality that leave all modern standards of decency behind, these are carnal, provocative, and wildly entertaining films, all extraordinarily designed by Dante Ferretti and featuring evocative music by Ennio Morricone.
