The aim of this research is to demonstrate the convergences between the rhymes of Dante's Commedia and Boccaccio's Caccia di Diana. The analysis developed on the rhymes has allowed us to understand that Boccaccio's work presents 44.6% of rhymes derived from the Comedia. The author, however, does not only retrieve rhymes from Dante, but he also uses contexts, images and syntagmas present in the three canticles. Caccia di Diana is the first work in tercets after the Commedia and the vulgarization of De Consolatione Philosophiae executed by Alberto Della Piagentina, so it is extremely interesting to note how the young Boccaccio approaches the Dantean model to begin composing in verse.
