The Italian Giovanni Francesco Straparola is the Godfather of the European literary fairy tale tradition with his Facetious Nights being first published in the 1550s. His tales are comical, bold, romantic and scary in equal measure and are as relevant today as they’ve ever been.

CCSW Presents in conjunction with Chris Brooks, a selection of Straparola’s most adventurous tales contained within the Facetious Nights inventive frame narrative.
