Caro padre, a me non dei Rammentar che padre sei: io lo so, ma in questi accenti non ritrovo il genitore. Non son io che ti consiglia, è il rispetto d’un regnante, è l’affetto d’una figlia, è il rimorso del tuo cor.

Dear father, you don't need to remind me; I know that you are my father. But your words cause me to no longer recognize you. I am not the one who so advises you: fealty to your sovereign, a daughter's love, and your heart's remorse are your counselors.
