Picturing a World

Stories in a time of plague

Blog post alert: On an outdoor walk yesterday, a writer friend and I were talking about the difficulties of working on fiction during these unsettling COVID-19 times. She mentioned the storytellers in Boccaccio's Decameron. Now lo and behold, here comes this morning's History Blog post on the Uffizi Gallery's digital Decameron (in Italian). Stories—told at a safe distance—will be one way for individuals and institutions alike will have to get through the next few weeks. Stay well, try to use the time creatively.
