Boccaccio is a 1936 German historical musical film directed by Herbert Maisch and starring Albrecht Schoenhals, Gina Falckenberg, and Willy Fritsch.[1] It was shot at the Babelsberg Studios in Berlin. The film's sets were designed by the art director Otto Hunte.


Boccaccio is an operetta that relates how Nazis conceived the Italian Renaissance. The Ferrara's residents are carried up in a tide of emotion and physical passion. Before long, the town is in chaos.


The film was produced by Universum-Film AG Berlin under the production management of Max Pfeiffer between mid-February and mid-April 1936 in the Ufa studios in Neubabelsberg and premiered on August 11, 1936 in the UFA-Palast (Berlin).[2]

The film music was written by Franz Doelle, the lyrics by Charles Amberg. Individual songs such as "Bella Fiametta", "Alles, alles tu' ich aus Liebe" and "Radiant Sun" were published by Ufaton Verlag, interpreted by Charles Amberg.[3]
