Podcast: “Daily Decameron”: stories to connect us in difficult times

The "Daily Decameron" is a collection of ten short stories from the Decameron, Giovanni Boccaccio's masterpiece.

Readings will be both in English and Italian. Per la versione italiana cliccare qui.

Written during the time of a plague, these stories still have the power of lifting the spirit and consoling souls. The ten episodes, preceded by an introductory episode, will be available weekly starting October 20 on our website. The "Daily Decameron" is a production of the Italian Cultural Institute of San Francsico and was written, translated and presented by Steve Siegelman and edited by Enrica Cavalli, with music interpreted by Jon Sayles.
