H'mm.  Seems to me there's one play that doesn't belong in the above

 Which play?

Might you be thinking of "Comedy of Errors," which actually takes place
in Sicily, not Italy?

"COMEDY OF ERRORS" actually occurs in Italy, although characters on the
stage refer to events which took place in Italy.
