I play three cornetto copies: the cornetto curvo, the most common cornetto, tuned in G, slightly curved and leather covered; then the cornettino diritto, a straight soprano cornetto in C, the smallest in the cornetto family; and the silent cornetto, a straight instrument in G, which, unlike the former two, has a mouthpiece directly built into the instrument.
