Italy next year will issue at least one edition of €2 commemorative coins, the coin will be dedicated to the "700 years since the birth of Giovanni Boccaccio".
Giovanni Boccaccio (1313 – 21 December 1375) was an Italian author and poet, a friend, student, and correspondent of Petrarch, an important Renaissance humanist and the author of a number of notable works including the Decameron, On Famous Women, and his poetry in the Italian vernacular. Boccaccio is particularly notable for his dialogue.
