Translation courtesy of Supertitlist Tom Getty: ...Then the notary comes. He enters. The room is in semi-darkness. In the bed he gets a glimpse of Buoso. On his head, a night cap. Over his face, a kerchief. And between them both, a nose that looks like Buoso's, But it's mine. Because instead of Buoso, it is I! I, Schicchi, with a new face and form. I will impersonate Buoso Donati, And dictate my last will and testament. Oh people! This crazy trick, Sprung from my imagination, Will be the greatest in all of eternity!
