Giovanni Boccaccio nasce nel 1313 a Certaldo, non abbiamo molte notizie sulla sua infanzia,sappiamo che era figlio illegittimo del ricco mercante Boccaccino. Venne cresciuto e istruito all'interno della famiglia paterna e nel 1327 si trasferì a Napoli per seguire il genitore, al servizio dell'influente compagnia dei Bardi come responsabile. Il giovane fu avviato a studi precoci nell'ambito mercantile ma li abbandonò ben presto per dedicarsi alla lettura di testi classici. Morirà nel 1375.
