Finally, we are staging one of the most significant works of not only Renaissance, but world literature, on the Zajc stage. Awaiting us is a modern reinterpretation of the classic, which is more relevant today than ever before.
This text, which has inspired generations of artists, excited people around the world, made millions of women laugh — at least, that is what the author hoped for — will be expertly revised by the symbolist director. Instead of Florence, it is Rijeka. Instead of the plague, there will be Covid-19. Instead of an escape to a country villa, there will be an escape to the theatre. Instead of a hundred stories, there will be ten.
Despite the reduction of the text, fragments of all the short stories have been successfully included in this brilliant adaptation. By modernizing and updating the centers of power that Boccaccio played with, thereby retaining the same ironic effect as the original, this play is an artistic response to the events that surround us.


The play will be performed in Italian with Croatian surtitles.
