Bella ciao

Anonymous: Bella ciao
Italian partisan song

Based on a folk song sung by rice-weeders, Bella ciao is a partisan song, sung by the anti-fascist resistance movement active in Italy between 1943 and 1945.

Nowadays, not only in Italy but anywhere, it represents the resistance against any oppression and any threat to freedom.
