VICENZO DA FILICAJA
Italian poet
(1642 - 1707)

Italia! O Italia! thou who hast
  The fatal gift of beauty, which became
    A funeral dower of present woes and past,
      On thy sweet brow is sorrow plough'd by shame,
        And annals graved in characters of flame.
          [It., Italia, Italia, O tu cui feo la sorte,
            Dono infelice di bellezza, ond' hai
              Funesta dote d'infiniti guai
                Che in fronte scritti per gran doglia porte.]
      - Italia,
        English rendering by Byron, "Childe Harold", canto IV, st. 42
        [Italy]
