Yes, you're right. I've been doing, er, triple or even quadruple error here. Having mixed both Goldoni and Collodi I've been mixed up with centuries. But now I know where I got the stuff about "Yojimbo" being based on Goldoni's play, I just don't have the book and you'll all have to wait. (Eagerly, very eagerly, I assume...) I'll get back to this in the afternoon.
