Is Venetian Yellow the same as Naples Yellow or does anyone know who makes it?

Sorry about the delay in responding Larry but i couldn't find my Pigments Database. (http://www.artiscreation.com/yellow.html)
According to the list it is a completely different pigment.

My Naples Yellow is PBr 24. The older version was PY42 and it contained lead.
It looks like Venetian Yellow Orange is PY41 or the same as Transparent Yellow Iron Oxide. I don't see just a plain Venetian Yellow.

Zecchi in Florence sell Venetian yellow, but I've never found a pigments list there.

Closer to py42 or py43 which , depending on the brand, is eithe a yellow ochre or mars yellow. Pebeo used to make a ven yellow, but now only does in oil.

Follow-up with Zecchi:
I asked for it to may laboratory...
It is a mix of:
PY65 -- giallo arilide [Arylide Yellow]
and PY35 Giallo cadmio limone [Cadmium Lemon Yellow]
The translations in square brackets are mine.
