The Italians resident in America,
scoffed at before,
during the voyage, menaced,
after it, chained,
as generous as oppressed,
to the world he gave a world.

Joy and Glory
Never utter a more thrilling call
Than that which resounded
From the conquered ocean
In sight of the first American island
Land! Land!

On the XII of October MDCCCXCII
The fourth centenary
Of the discovery of America
In imperishable remembrance
