First documentary mentions


  • around 1353: Giovanni Boccaccio finishes work on the Decameron . This collection of 100 novellas is a style-defining work that becomes the model for almost all other collections of western novellas. The cyclical structure of the work relates to the meaning of the ancient holy number ten, which Bonaventure called numerus perfectissimus , with Dante's Divine Comedy , which is divided into a hundred chants, serving as a model.
