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!
