29th October is the 8th anniversary of
Franco Corelli's death.

Corelli as young Duca di Mantova in
Verdi's Rigoletto.

Questa o quella per me pari sono
A quant' altre d' intorno mi vedo,
Del mio core I'impero non cedo
Meglio ad una che ad altre beltà
La costoro avvenenza è qual dono
Di que il fato ne infiora la vita
S' oggi questa mi torna gradita
Forse un' altra doman lo sarà.
La costanza tiranna del core
Detestiamo qual morbo crudele,
Sol chi vuole si serbi fedele;
Non v'ha amor se non v'è libertà.
De' i mariti geloso il furore,
Degli amanti le smanie derido,
Anco d' Argo i cent'occhi disfido
Se mi punge una qualche beltà.


This girl or that girl are just
the same to me,
to all the others around me
I won't give away my heart
to this beauty nor to the others.
Their charm is a gift
Given by destiny to embellish their lives
If today I love this one
I'll probably love someone else tomorrow.
We hate constancy, the heart's tyrant,
as if it were a cruel plague,
Let those who wish to be faithful
keep their fidelity alive;
There is no love without freedom.
The rage of jealous husbands
and lovers' woes I despise,
I can defy Argo's hundred eyes
If I fancy a beautiful girl.
