Though the author of the lyrics is unknown, the song originated in Italy and eventually stood for the rights of all people to be liberated from tyranny.

In 2017 it rose to popularity as the rallying song in the Netflix series Money Heist, also known as La Casa de Papel in Spain. In the series, Tokyo describes how The Professor’s life has revolved around “resistance,” and this song is sung by the characters at key parts in the story.

This is my first song in Italian, and since I am not a native speaker, please forgive any mispronunciations.

I hope you enjoy it!
