Boccaccio's Decameron


some text


Elissa belongs to the Ghibelline political faction. She is known as a passionate, young woman. When the women are deciding whether or not to flee Florence, she agrees with Filomena who says that women are unable to rule themselves and she wonders where they will find reputable men to accompany them to the countryside. Elissa dictates the theme of Day Two: people who avoid ceisure through their wit.
