    What are the words to Italy’s national anthem?

    Fratelli d’Italia,
    l’Italia s’è desta,
    dell’elmo di Scipio
    s’è cinta la testa.
    Dov’è la Vittoria?
    Le porga la chioma,
    ché schiava di Roma
    Iddio la creò.

    Stringiamci a coorte,
    siam pronti alla morte.
    Siam pronti alla morte,
    l’Italia chiamò.
    Stringiamci a coorte,
    siam pronti alla morte.
    Siam pronti alla morte,
    l’Italia chiamò! Sì!

    What are the English words to Italy’s national anthem?

    Brothers of Italy,
    Italy has woken,
    bound Scipio’s helmet
    Upon her head.
    Where is Victory?
    Let her bow down,
    Because [as a] slave of Rome
    God created her.

    Let us join in a cohort,
    we are ready to die.
    We are ready to die,
    Italy has called.
    Let us join in a cohort,
    We are ready to die.
    We are ready to die,
    Italy has called! Yes!
