The most problematic of these outside contributions are those for Alidoro, whose musical situation (as noted in the critical commentary by editor Alberto Zedda) was further complicated by the fact that the only piece for him that survives in the autograph is in neither Rossini's nor Agolini's hand and begins with the text "Fa silenzio, odi un rumore," an apparent substitution made for an 1818 reviva l in which Rossini had no part.
