In Emilia’s fourth tale (IV, 7), Pasquino’s job as the porter of a wool-merchant introduces him to one of the spinners, Simona, who becomes his lover. He demonstrates the sometimes-cruel fortune that falls on lovers when he dies from accidental poisoning. His friends Stramba, Atticciato, Malagevole, and Guccio Imbratta bury him.
