Italian National Anthem - The Song of the Italians

Versions: #1#2#3#4#5
Brothers of Italy,
Italy has woken,
bound Scipio's helmet
Upon her head.
Where is Victory?
Let her bow down,
Because [as a] slave of Rome
God created her.
 
Brothers of Italy,
Italy has woken,
bound Scipio's helmet
Upon her head.
Where is Victory?
Let her bow down,
Because [as a] slave of Rome
God created her.
 
Let us join in a cohort,
we are ready to die.
We are ready to die,
Italy has called.
Let us join in a cohort,
We are ready to die.
We are ready to die,
Italy has called! Yes!
 
We were for centuries
downtrodden, derided,
because we are not one people,
because we are divided.
Let one flag, one hope
gather us all.
The hour has struck
for us to unite.
 
Let us unite, let us love one another,
For union and love
Reveal to the people
The ways of the Lord.
Let us swear to set free
The land of our birth:
United, by God,
Who can overcome us?
 
Let us join in a cohort,
we are ready to die.
We are ready to die,
Italy has called.
 
Let us join in a cohort,
We are ready to die.
We are ready to die,
Italy has called!
 
From the Alps to Sicily,
Legnano is everywhere;
Every man has the heart
and hand of Ferruccio
The children of Italy
Are all called Balilla;
Every trumpet blast
sounds the Vespers.
 
Mercenary swords,
they're feeble reeds.
Already the Eagle of Austria
Has lost its plumes.
The blood of Italy,
the Polish blood
It drank, along with the Cossack,
But it burned its heart.
 
Let us join in a cohort,
we are ready to die.
We are ready to die,
Italy has called.
 
Let us join in a cohort,
We are ready to die.
We are ready to die,
Italy has called!
 
Thanks!
