Andrea Bocelli – La Dolcissima Effigie lyrics

(Francesco Cilea - adriana lecouvreur)

La dolcissima effigie sorridente
In te rivedo della madre cara;
Nel tuo cor
Della mia patria, dolce preclara
L'aura ribevo,
Che m'aprì la mente.
Bella tu sei, come la mia bandiera,
Della pugne fiammante entro I vapor;
Tu sei gioconda, come la chimera
Della Gloria promessa al vincitor.
Bella tu sei, tu sei gioconda.
