Abstract

In The Decameron, by Giovanni Boccaccio, fantasy between fable and history are immediately measured against the consequences of the close relationship, established since ancient times, between invention and truth.This producing a text in which the real world interacts with the wonderful and marvelous, in the creation of those other worlds through which the entire group of ten storytellers travel. It is also possible to verify, according to Boccaccio’s theory presented in Genealogy Deorum Gentilium (“On the Genealogy of the Gods of the Gentiles”), that for him literature is locutio sub figment and it is able to conceive - by wonderful creative tension - a new world of words.
