In Dioneo’s seventh tale (VII, 10), Tingoccio Mini is a young man living in Siena. He is best friends with Meuccio di Tura, the godfather of Mita and Ambruogio Anselmini’s child, and, eventually, Mita’s lover. Since their relationship is considered incestuous by medieval standards, Tingoccio represents the power of love even against Christian morality.
