Italian.png Italian text

Neve non tocca la tua veste appare
Cingi una zona del color del mare.
E a quei che a tanta altezza t’han levata
Volgi gli occhi soavi, o immacolata.
Più ti contemplo e dal caduco limo
Più libero mi sento e mi sublimo.

English.png English translation

Like intact snow your clothes look,
you wear a belt coloured like the sea.
And to those who extolled you to such a height
turn your sweet eyes, o immaculate.
The more I admire you, the more from this earthly mud
I feel free and I feel sublimed.
