Notes From Straparola's collection Le piacevoli notti. This is the tale 2 of night 1 (there are no actual titles to the stories). Also known as "Cassandrino", or "Cassandrino the Thief" in English.

English synopsis from the W. G. Waters translation (1894): "Cassandrino, a noted robber, and a friend of the praetor of Perugia, steals the praetor's bed and his horse Liardo, but afterwards becomes a man of probity and good repute."
