Feather and Coals in Decameron

Step 3 of 5

Steal the feather

Two residents of Certaldo, called Giovanni del Bragoniera and Biagio Pizzini, have known the friar for a long time and decide to play a trick on him, just to see how he will respond in an embarrassing situation. The two men go to the place where Fra Cipolla lives and find his servant Guccio Imbratta guarding the bedroom. But soon after, the servant leaves his post to woo a serving girl called Nuta. Giovanni and Biagio now have the opportunity to enter the room, steal the feather and replace it with coals.
