Con sì bel nome in fronte
combatterai più forte.
Rispetterà la sorte

With such a glorious name across your brow
Language: English  after the Italian (Italiano) 
With such a glorious name across your brow,
you shall fight more vigorously.
Fortune shall regard you
as a true son of Rome.

Live free. When Fate
should deny you even this,
at least you shall learn from me
how one ought to die.
