La Vittoria
Language: Italian (Italiano) 
Available translation(s): FRE
Il gran Giove non si gloria
d'altre belle esser amante
Gode solo Dio costante
Quando in seno e di Vittoria.

La Vittoria d'un bel Rovere
Al suo Giove adorna il crine
Nel cui verde in aure e brine
Già la gloria venne à piovere.

Nacque già nobil primitia
Già gli rese il ciel fecondi
Ma d'Etruria anco i sei mondi
D'alti Eroi voglion douitia.

Vittoria
Language: French (Français)  after the Italian (Italiano) 
Le grand Jupiter ne se glorifie pas 
d'autres belles à aimer,
le Dieu constant se réjouit seulement
Quand il est sur le sein de Vittoria.

Vittoria, d'un beau chêne,
orne la chevelure de son Jupiter,
dans sa verdure, dans la brise et le givre,
déjà la gloire est venue se déverser.

Les premiers fruits nobles sont déjà nés,
et le ciel l'a rendue fertile
mais en Étrurie comme dans les six mondes
la dévotion est due aux plus hauts héros.
