“Bella Ciao” reaction to Laura Pausini

Vita gazette – Laura Pausini’s refusal to sing the song “Bella Ciao” on Spanish television, on the grounds that “it is a very political song”, caused a reaction.

Laura Pausini participated in the popular quiz on Spanish television. Her lack of accompaniment to Bella Ciao, the anthem of the Partisan Resistance and the struggle against fascism, caused controversy.

Pausini explained it by saying, “This is a very political song and I don’t want to sing political songs.” However, the artist, who was criticized on social media, reacted with phrases such as “You should be ashamed” and “Bella ciao forever!!!”. If you see Bella Ciao as a political song of all political parties that are understood to be partisan, only anti-fascist and anti-Nazi, but involved in the Resistance from Communists to Catholics to Liberals, I recommend a review. “She embarrassed me by her refusal to sing Bella Ciao. It means not knowing the roots of her land. The song has a story and the first version, mondine’s song, which tells a story of exploited and exploited masses. Bella Ciao is the song that gives a voice to the oppressed,” he said.

The song of the Italian workers working in the rice fields

Born as an Italian folk song, Cav Bella has evolved over the years into the anthem of the anti-fascist movement. Bella Ciao, a folk song about the poor working conditions of Italian workers, became an anthem of revolt against leaders such as Hitler and Mussolini during World War II.

Bella Ciao’s song was first sung in the early years of the 19th century. At that time, workers in the rice fields were leaving home very early and working in very bad conditions. Here, one of those workers, on his way to the rice field, tells a story to his wife, who is waiting for her way. Her name is “Bella Ciao” ​​which means “Goodbye Beautiful”. And in time, Bella Ciao turns into a folk song about both the working conditions of the internal workers and the love.

Adopted as a popular folk song, the song became popular in the pre-World War II conditions. Anti-fascist movements began to be formed against leaders such as Hitler, Mussolini, Franco, who threatened both their people and other peoples of the world. The first anti-fascist uprisings also broke out in Italy. And the Italian folk song Bella Ciao, sung fondly by the people’s song and describing the plight of the workers, was turned into an anthem by the opposition movement during this period. For communists, socialists and other anti-fascist groups, Sergeant Bella has become a veritable riot march. And by crossing the borders, it became the song of the oppressed all over the world and those who wanted to voice their rebellion against injustice.
