Notes From Straparola's collection Le piacevoli notti. This is the tale 1 of night 3 (there are no actual titles to the stories). Also known as "Pietro" and "Pietro il pazzo", or "Pietro the Fool" in English.

English synopsis from the W. G. Waters translation (1894): "A simple fellow, named Peter, gets back his wits by the help of a tunny fish which he spared after having taken it in his net, and likewise wins for his wife a king's daughter."
