Incorrect genre translations from english to italian

Hello, I have seen that in the italian version of IMDB the genre Mystery is translated as "Poliziesco". This is absolutely a mistake.
Poliziesco is a subgenre of the Crime genre, when the movie focuses on the police investigation on a murder case.
Into the Crime genre, the opposite of Poliziesco is the "Noir film", when the point of view is tied with the criminal view.
And the third Crime subgenre is the "Giallo", when the crime is full of blood and mystery.


So, Mistery is an ampler genre, and indicates something puzzling that must be solved, not only a murder and a police investigation, but a secret too.
Thus, the correct translation for "Mistery" is "Mistero".

Another mistake is the incorrect translation of Drama with "Teatro". In italian language, "Teatro" is the theater, the physical place where the people go to watch a Drama.
The correct translation for Drama is "Dramma".

@Vic​, the Drama has been changed in Drammatico (which is correct also), but Mystery is now changed in "Giallo" (instead of "Mistero"), which is slightly incorrect because the tag will imply a lot of movies that have nothing to do with the crime investigations.

Example: the famous serial Lost (2004-2010) is full of Mystery but there are no crime investigations in it, so it's not "Giallo".
