Pietro di Vinciolo appears in Dioneo’s fifth tale (V, 10). He marries Pietro’s Wife, a lusty young woman, either despite his homosexual desires, or to draw attention from them. Although he shows no interest in her, he’s upset to discover she is having an affair…at least until they decide to share the young man between them. In getting to share his wife’s attractive young man, he does become one of Day V’s lucky lovers.
