Italian National Anthem- Inno di Mameli

Italy joined the 6 Nations in 2000. During the past 17 tournaments, they have beaten all but England. And last year beat a southern hemisphere giant, South Africa.

Before joining the 6 nations, Italy played at a variety of stadiums before creating a home at the Stadio Flaminio in the capital. In 2012, Italy temporarily moved to the Stadio Olimpico, also in Rome due to renovations at their stadium. They have since stayed at the Olimpico, allowing more spectators to watch Italy play. Stadio Olimpico can hold up to 80,000 spectators, almost twice the size of their original stadium.

They are a team that are certainly getting better with each competition. They have made an impact in the 6 nations, especially with their fantastic anthem! The music and lyrics together make this anthem the most passionate in the 6 nations.

Inno di Mameli

Fratelli d’Italia,
l’Italia s’è desta,
dell’elmo di Scipio
s’è cinta la testa.
Dov’è la Vittoria?
Le porga la chioma,
ché schiava di Roma
Iddio la creò.

Stringiamci a coorte,
siam pronti alla morte.
Siam pronti alla morte,
l’Italia chiamò.
Stringiamci a coorte,
siam pronti alla morte.
Siam pronti alla morte,
l’Italia chiamò! Sì!

Brothers of Italy,
Italy has woken,
Bound Scipio’s helmet
Upon her head.
Where is Victory?
Let her bow down,
For God created her
Slave of Rome.

Let us join in a cohort,
We are ready to die,
We are ready to die,
Italy has called.
Let us join in a cohort,
We are ready to die.
We are ready to die,
Italy has called! Yes!


This anthem technically has 2 titles- Inno di Mameli (Mameli’s hymn), but is also known as ‘Canto degli Italiani’ (Song of the Italians). Mameli wrote the anthem in 1847, and later became the national anthem of Italy in 1946.

Italy face Scotland in the first of three games on Saturday: O flower of Scotland Vs Inno di Mameli.
