Libretto/Lyrics/Text/Testo:

Plebe! Patrizi!
Popolo dalla feroce storia!
Erede sol dell'odio dei Spinola, dei Doria,
Mentre v'invita estatico
Il regno ampio dei mari,
Voi nei fraterni lari vi lacerate il cor.
Piango su voi,
Sul placido raggio del vostro clivo
Là  dove invan germoglia il ramo dell'ulivo.
Piango sulla mendace festa dei vostri fior
E vo gridando : pace!
E vo gridando : amor!
