Italian National Anthem
The lyrics to Il Canto degli Italiani (The Song of the Italians) was written by Goffredo Mameli in 1847. Shortly thereafter is was set to music by Michele Novaro. This became a popular hymn during the Risorgimento. It wasn't until Italy became a republic in 1946 that this was chosen as the country's national anthem.
Below are the lyrics in Italian and English to the entire peom written by Mameli. When the Italian national anthem is sung they sing the first stanza twice and then they sing the chorus twice. The chorus starts with Stringiamoci a coorte! After the chorus has been recited twice they end with a loud Sì! (Yes!).
