"Bella Ciao" is an Italian folk song dating back to the 19th century. It became famous as the hymn of the Italian resistance movement (the "Resistenza") during World War II, who fought against both German nazis and Italian Fascists.

Because of its history, it's known worldwide as a hymn of resistance and freedom!

“Bella Ciao” has been covered countless times and appeared in many films and TV shows, as recently in the Netflix sensation “Money Heist” (La casa de papel, Haus des Geldes).

Listen to the whole arrangement here:

Here are the full lyrics of the “Resistenza” hymn “Bella Ciao”:

“Una mattina mi son svegliato,

o bella ciao, bella ciao, bella ciao ciao ciao!

Una mattina mi son svegliato

e ho trovato l'invasor.

O partigiano portami via,

o bella ciao, bella ciao, bella ciao ciao ciao

o partigiano portami via

che mi sento di morir.

E se io muoio da partigiano,

o bella ciao, bella ciao, bella ciao ciao ciao,

e se io muoio da partigiano

tu mi devi seppellir.

Seppellire lassù in montagna,

o bella ciao, bella ciao, bella ciao ciao ciao,

seppellire lassù in montagna

sotto l'ombra di un bel fior.

E le genti che passeranno,

o bella ciao, bella ciao, bella ciao ciao ciao,

e le genti che passeranno

mi diranno «che bel fior.»

Questo è il fiore del partigiano,

o bella ciao, bella ciao, bella ciao ciao ciao,

questo è il fiore del partigiano

morto per la libertà!”
