In this program we will travel to 14th century Florence, when the Black Death plague was ravaging Europe. In Boccacio's Decameron, Pampinea, the protagonist, seeks refuge in a secluded villa on the outskirts of Florence with nine friends. When the sun is high, there is no better way to pass the time than in the shade of a blossoming garden, telling stories... During the ten days of quarantine they assemble a hundred stories that range from erotic to tragic, and each imparts a lesson to the audience. The variety of stories will be reflected in the Florentine Trecento repertoire that will be performed with recorder, pipe and tabor, and organetto.
