The Ukrainian version of “Bella Ciao” ​​was popularized by the famous Ukrainian folk singer Khrystyna Solovy, who has readapted the partisan song to the context of the current conflict with Russia, dedicating it, as he explained on social networks, “to all the armed forces, to our heroes and to all those who are currently fighting for their own land”.

The song, titled “Ukrainian rage”He says in the first verse: One morning at dawn / The earth shook and our blood began to boil / The rockets from the sky, the columns of tanks / And old Dnipro screamed.

The song goes on: “No one thought of it, no one knew / What was the Ukrainian anger / We will mercilessly kill the damned executioners / Those who are invading our land.”

In the last verse, the song makes a reference to the Javelins missiles and the Turkish Bayraktar drones, some of the weapons that were key to the successful Ukrainian resistance and counteroffensive against Putin’s troops.

“In Territorial Defense there are better guys / In our armed forces real heroes fight / And the Javelins and the Bayraktar / They kill the Russians for Ukraine / And our people, the Ukrainians / They have already united the whole world against the Russians / And very soon We will defeat them / And there will be peace throughout the Earth”concludes the new version of “Bella ciao”.

Emerged as an anthem of the Italian resistance against the fascism of Benito Mussolini and German Nazi forces during World War II, the song is usually sung by Italians every April 25, the date on which Italy celebrates its liberation from Nazi fascism.

The origin of the song, recently popularized by the Spanish series “La Casa de Papel”, could go back even further than WWII, as some suggest it’s an adaptation of a song Klezmer, traditional music of the Ashkenazi Jews who occupied the Eastern European region. Specifically, they attribute it to Oi Oi di Kolenby the Ukrainian accordionist Mishka Ziganoffrecorded in 1919 in New York.

Meanwhile, there is another version that indicates that the issue had its origin in the workers of the rice fields of the Po River valleynorth of the peninsula.

Of course, beyond the different versions, the emblematic song continued its journey until reaching the media explosion in times of digital platforms and reproductions through YouTube.

In the ’60s, music acquired character of a popular anthem during the demonstrations carried out by workers and studentswhile during the government of Silvio Berlusconi the leftist parties sang it as a protest song.

In 2013, the song was sung during protests in istanbuland a year later it was loudly heard in the framework of the pro-democracy events in Hong Kong. Also, in Greece was taken during the election campaigns by the extreme left parties. With replication in all corners of the planet, South America was not exempt from the event: the melody sounded in the ’70s in Chiliduring the government of Salvador Allende.

O partisan, carry my way,

che mi sento di die.

E se io muoio da partigiano,

oh beautiful, bye! beautiful, bye! beautiful, bye, bye, bye!

E se io muoio da partigiano,

you my devi seppellir.

E seppellire lassù in montagna,

oh beautiful, bye! beautiful, bye! beautiful, bye, bye, bye!

E seppellire lassù in montagna

And the people who passeranno

My diranno «Che bel fior!»
