As a nation state, Italy has emerged only in 1871. Until then the country was politically divided into a large number of independant cities, provinces and islands. The currently available evidences point out to a dominant Etruscan, Greek and Roman cultural influence on today's Italians.
I feel guilty using this site so often, but I have never found such concise and meaningful information.May I trouble you all for another question the answer to which will make my wife very very happy. Can anybody give me the words and the meaning to that wonderful Italian song "Ce La Luna". Thank You all so much .
Thanks,Suanj. I really wanted the words to the whole song and the meaning of all the words . I know that is a lot to ask but I have looked all over and not been able to find it . My wife's grandfather sang her that song all the time but he has passed away.Perhaps somebody can give me the first 7 or 8 lines.I think it starts"Ce La luna ,mensa mare....They sang that song also in the movie The Godfather.. Thanks.
Thanks for posting the link. I went to the site and was able to print the words (which I've always wanted to know myself) and found a few other things that were interesting...I didn't know that the colors of the Italian Flag represented Hope, Faith and Charity!
