Are you just referring to a center ring in which some kind of action takes place/could take place?

One is obvious--the final showdown. What's the other?

I wonder if Leone got the idea for these circular duels from Hidden Fortress where the "corrida" is made up of soldiers. By the way if anyone has ever seen the incredibly hard to find "The Taste of Violence/Le Goût de la Violence" by Robert Hossein (director of Cemetery without Crosses), would they agree that there is quite a similarity between them in terms of basic plot structure and balck&white mountain photography? No "corrida" duels in Hossein's one tho...

I'm usuing a broad definition of corrida, think again  Afro

I know Frayling uses it, but I'm not sure if "corrida" is the right word cos that specifically refers to the "running" of the bulls. Not that I can think of anything better...

The first one in GBU is seen at AE's entrance to the film he rides across one as he approaches the boy on the mule outside the hacienda.

I've found it! The technical term appears to be "halo" which in its original sense derives from the Greek word for such circular threshing grounds. I think all of Leone's duels/triels occur in these "halos" although I am unclear as to why there would be one in the middle of a graveyard at the end of GBU.

As for "corrida", even if one considers the duel in Corbucci's "Il mercenario", I think it is still best simply called a "circular arena" or "bullring" because the word "corrida" specifically refers to an activity rather than a place.
