by Vittorio Amedeo Cigna-Santi (c1730 - 1795)

Non si ceda al Campidoglio
Language: Italian (Italiano) 
Available translation(s): ENG
Non si ceda al Campidoglio,  
si resista a quell'orgoglio,
che frenarsi ancor non sa.

Guerra sempre, e non mai pace
da noi abbia un genio altero,
che pretende al mondo intero
d'involar la libertà.
