bella ciao money heist mask

After we watched the television series called Money Heist, we were prancing around the living room singing: Bella Ciao. It is a very catchy Italian folk song that originated in the late 19th century. Originally sung by the mondina workers in protect of the harsh working conditions in Northern Italy. Bella Ciao translate to Goodbye Beautiful in English. The song was also adopted as an anthem of the anti-fascist resistance by the Italian partisans between 1942 and 1945 during the Italian resistance against Nazi German forces that were occupying Italy at that time.

There are many versions of the song Bella Ciao, and it continues to be sung worldwide as an anti-fascist hymn of freedom and resistance. Whilst the original writer is unknown, the song is said to have originated in 1906 in the Piedmont region.
