Giovanni Sercambi (1348-1424) was an apothecary in the town of Lucca, about sixty kilometers to the west of Florence.

He was Lucca's best known author in the fourteenth century.

In addition to a collection of stories patterned on Boccaccio's Decameron and a commentary on a portion of Dante's Divine Comedy, he wrote the Chronicle of the history of Lucca in which he included ink sketches of important events.
