A Modern Decameron

by Carmen Colombo

These pictures were taken last August during a trip to Greece. They are the storytelling of some days spent together with some friends in a house in the Peloponnese countryside. It was like finding an oasis of peace after the difficult lockdown in Italy.

Here, I re-discovered the value of freedom and sharing – we enjoyed the outdoors, the warm light of the sun and the simple life. It is a modern and personal cross-reference to Boccaccio’s Decameron, a literary work that tells the stories of a group of young people isolated in a countryside house during the ‘300 plague epidemic.
