Translation courtesy of Supertitlist Tom Getty:
...His artful eyes laugh in his odd face, with a nose as big as a tower!
He comes from the sticks? So what!
Enough of your petty predjudices!

Florence is like a blossoming tree
In the Piazza dei Signori.
Its roots draw strength from the fertile valleys, Florence blooms up to the stars With mighty palaces and slender towers.

Berfore the Arno flows into the ocean,
It sings as it kisses the Piazza Santa Croce.
Its song is so sweet and melodious,
The brooks join it in chorus!
Thus may all men of arts and sciences
Join together to enrich Florence!

And down from the Val D'Elsa castles,
Welcome Arnolfo to build his fine tower!
Welcome Giotto from the Mugello woods,
And Medici, the bold merchant.

Enough of petty hate and spite!
Long live the new breed of men, and Gianni Schicchi!
