Wondrous Boccaccio

Wondrous Boccaccio

A paean to Italian history, art, and imagination and set against the backdrop of 14th century Florence, Wondrous Boccaccio captures the adventures of ten young men and women as they escape from plague-stricken Florence to the countryside and regale each other with bawdy tales of love, destiny and desire.

Following its premiere at the 2015 Tribeca Film Festival, the film rolled out to prestigious festivals across the globe, makes stops in Beijing, Munich, Vancouver, Göteborg, Tokyo, Karlovy Vary and, of course, various cities in Italy.
