about

Sardegna, an isolated but beautiful microcosm floating apart from Italy in the Tyrrhenian Sea, far from the new world, America. The ancient world waits to catch up with the modern stories unfolding in other lands but remains undiscovered as though stuck in its ancient history. The poetess, young and ambitious but sewn to her roots, tells a bird to carry a message: I am here, still waiting to be discovered.

lyrics

AMERICA e SARDIGNA
- O limbazu chi ammentas su romanu
durche faeddu de sa patria mea
tristu comente cantu ‘e filumena
chi in sas rosas si dormit a manzanu
- cola su mare, e cando in sa fiorida
America nche ses a tottus nara
chi s’isula ‘e Sardigna isettat galu
de esser iscoperta e connoschida.

(English translation)
- O language that throws back to the Romans
Sweet fairy tale of my patriotic land
sad like the song of the Blackcap bird
that amidst the roses, sleeps until morning
- the boat undulates, and when it flourishes,
you will be in America
tell everyone that the island of Sardinia
is still waiting to be discovered and known.
