    This was on ebay.fr and looks like it has ended.

    Some nice photos in the ad but no good view of the neck.

    Thanx Mick, I was searching "Calzado" while the listing title says "Galzado"....no wonder I could not find it.

    Yes, a typo from the seller, I guess. An interesting name. Calzado implying "footwear" in Spanish.
    A calzolaio is a shoemaker in "official" Italian. With Neapolitan all bets are off.
    #6980 (or whatever) implies that he made a few.
    Maybe they all wound up in France.

    The typo could have been worse, if the seller wrote the luthier's name as "Cazzado", or hitting the genuine Neapolitan expression of bonhomie and affection with misspelling "Cazzato".

    Now that's funny.

    My wife and I were visiting the lovely little town of Todi some years ago and being a fan of Greek-cross church plans I led us off in search of the local landmark.
    I asked a trio of nonnas where we might find the church of "Santa Maria della Colazione".
    They were weeping with laughter, but pointed us in the right direction.
    We enjoyed a light lunch afterwards.

    That's a good one. There is much levity and mirth to be had with comparative linguistics, be it inadvertently or with design.
