The Decameron was written around seven hundred years ago, however it is still very relevant today.
An important piece of literature with the power to encourage young people to use their imagination, reflect and bond in a time of overwhelming anxieties.
Giovanni Boccaccio started writing The Decameron in the wake of the plague outbreak, but rather than write about death he instead wrote about life flourishing. He wrote about the curative power of stories.
To introduce the author and his masterpiece to the younger generation we will be offering a brand new Intensive Italian course over Half-Term breaks and school holidays.
Watch the video and meet the teacher who will be delivering the online course over the summer.
