  • Title: La donna nella novelistica del Quattrocento: Sercambi e le "Cent nouvelles nouvelles" [one of Boccaccio's imitators was Giovanni Sercambi; many stereotypes about women, most derived from the novelistic tradition, appear in his tales; by the fifteenth century, the novel had become, for reasons of its erotic content, limited to an all-male audience; Sercambi's tales were circulated in such circles, including that of Philip the Good of Burgundy, both in the original Italian and in translation].
