Abstract

The essay intends to demonstrate Boccaccio's knowledge of Petrarch's Familiare 21:8, and to show the possibility that the composition of De Mulieribus Claris may have been inspired by Petrarch's letter. The article analyzes in detail Proba's and Hypsicratea's biographies, written by Petrarch as well as Boccaccio. The essay's conclusion offers some important considerations on the representation of women in these two authors, pointing out in this regard Boccaccio's modernity vis-à-vis Petrarch.
