Summary of Decameron tales , AT 1678

The story Filipo Balducci's son is commonly referred to as the 101st story of the Decameron. Filipo Balducci is a hermit living with his son on Mount Asinaio after the death of his wife and travels occasionally to Florence for supplies. One day his son--now eighteen and having never before left the mountain--accompanies him because Filipo is too infirm to make the journey alone. While there the son becomes fascinated with women, even though he had never seen one before and Filipo regrets ever bringing his son to Florence.

In folkloristics, the story is referred to as AT 1678.
