I was at Craven Cottage a few years ago for a friendly between Ireland and Italy. The ground was full and split 50/50 between the Irish and the Italians. I have to say that the singing of the Italian anthem was one of the highlights of the evening. To a man and woman they blasted out that song. To describe their performance as thunderous doesn't do it justice. It was wonderful.Boring Sunday afternoon thread, but besides God Save The Queen whats your favourite?
I'm a big F1 fan and know a few due to that, but feel there's something special about the Italian National Anthem not replicated in another one.
Beautiful tune. Was always the first song out of the hat after a few beers whenever my brother-in-law (army) and Dad (navy) got together in the house. Not sure that all the "bounds increase(d)" were "paved with peace" mind...Ours should be Vow to thee my Country.
