You can help us modernize! The present website has been online for a very long time and we want to bring it up to date. As of May 6, we are $2,380 away from our goal of $15,000 to fund the project. The fully redesigned site will be better for mobile, easier to read and navigate, and ready for the next decade. Please give today to join dozens of other supporters in making this important overhaul possible!

Sogna il guerrier le schiere,
Le selve il cacciator;
E sogna il pescator 
Le reti e l'amo.

Sopito in dolce obblio,
Sogno pur io così
Colei, che tutto il dì
sospiro e chiamo.


Confirmed with Tutte le opere di Pietro Metastasio, Firenze, Tipografia Borghi e compagni 1832, page 140.

The text appears in Artaserse, atto I, scena VI, Aria di Megabise.

Del fanciullo il primo canto
è la voce del dolore,
cresce al mondo e cresce intanto
all'affanno ed al sofrir.

Si, di abando e dai pensieri
del buon vino si tracanni,
passerem felici gli anni
in questa valle di miserie piena.

D'una poco giovinezza
poco dura il suo fiorire,
tosto viene la vecchiezza
vien la morte a far cùcù.

Viva Antonio, il grande il forte, gran patricia
del buon vino ei pur tracanni,
passerem felici gli anni
in questa valle di miserie piena.
