by Pietro Antonio Domenico Bonaventura Trapassi (1698 - 1782), as Pietro Metastasio

Va’ tra le selve ircane
Language: Italian (Italiano) 
Va’ tra le selve ircane
barbaro genitore;
fiera di te peggiore,
mostro peggior non v’è.
Quanto di reo produce
l’Africa al sol vicina,
l’inospita marina,
tutto s’aduna in te.
