by William Shakespeare (1564 - 1616)
Translation by Carlo Rusconi (1819 - 1889)

Tomorrow, and tomorrow, and tomorrow
Language: English 
Available translation(s): ITA
Tomorrow, and tomorrow, and tomorrow, 
Creeps in this petty pace from day to day, 
To the last syllable of recorded time; 
And all our yesterdays have lighted fools 
The way to dusty death. Out, out, brief candle!
Life's but a walking shadow, a poor player
That struts and frets his hour upon the stage, 
And then is heard no more; it is a tale 
Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, 
Signifying nothing.

Così il dimani, poi il dimani
Language: Italian (Italiano)  after the English 
Così il dimani, poi il dimani, 
poi un altro dimani ancora ci sorprende, 
e tutti i nostri giorni passati 
altro non fecero che rischiarare agl’incauti il sentiero 
che guida alla sepoltura. Oh spegniti, spegniti lampada ingannatrice: 
la vita altro non è che un’ombra incerta, 
che offusca brev’ora gli oggetti, poi si dilegua. 
È una favola narrata da un idiota 
con enfasi di gesti e di suoni, e che alla fine 
non significa nulla.
