Anthem Lyrics

Fratelli d'Italia,


l'Italia s'e' desta,


dell'elmo di Scipio


s'e cinta la testa.


Dov'e la vittoria?


Le porga la chioma,


che schiava di Roma


Iddio la creo'.





Stringiamoci a coorte,


siam pronti alla morte.


Siam pronti alla morte,


l'Italia chiamo'.


Stringiamoci a coorte,


siam pronti alla morte.


Siam pronti alla morte,


l'Italia chiamo', si'!





Noi fummo da secoli


calpesti, derisi,


perche' non siam popoli,


perche' siam divisi.


Raccolgaci un'unica


bandiera, una speme:


di fonderci insieme


gia' l'ora suono'.





Uniamoci, uniamoci,


l'unione e l'amore


rivelano ai popoli


le vie del Signore.


Giuriamo far libero


il suolo natio:


uniti, per Dio,


chi vincer ci puo'?
