The Fico, where Giovanni and his cronies from the Red City brigade see Neighbourhood World: Kings for a day find themselves drinking one Saturday night, was probably the best known tavern in Florence. It also shows up in a of Carnival songs, a popular Renaissance genre that traded in erotic double-entendre.
This literary relationship between taverns and sex was grounded in reality. City-centre taverns were equally prominent in the topography of sodomy, which was very often an act between men.
The abominable vice was condemned, but also partly tolerated by civic authorities, and we know that it was an integral part of male culture and sociability for all classes. As much as half of the male population of fifteenth-century Florence was indicted for sodomy at some point in their lives, but the penalties, usually fines, were relatively lenient. In the Fico, he and his Red City friends bump into a group of men belonging to the Prato potenzaa neighbourhood brigade on the other side of the city.
It would have been especially stinging since Michele is an older male. When the men of the Prato threaten to report Michele to the Officers of the Night, set up in to prosecute sodomy, a brawl between the men of these two prominent street kingdoms inevitably begins … and with that another ificant aspect of male culture in Renaissance cities.
