The "Marcia Reale d'Ordinanza" or "Fanfara Reale" (Royal March of Ordinance / Royal Fanfare) was the official national anthem of the Kingdom of Italy between 1861 and 1946. It was composed in 1831 by Giuseppe Gabetti to the order of Charles Albert of Sardinia as the hymn of the royal House of Savoy.

Like the Spanish national anthem, also called the "Royal March", it was purely instrumental, although several unofficial lyrics were composed.

Unofficial lyrics[edit]

Evviva il Re! Evviva il Re ! Evviva il Re!
Chinate o Reggimenti le Bandiere al nostro Re
La gloria e la fortuna dell'Italia con Lui è
Bei Fanti di Savoia gridate evviva il Re!
Chinate o Reggimenti le Bandiere al nostro Re!
Viva il Re! Viva il Re! Viva il Re!
Le trombe liete squillano
Viva il Re! Viva il Re! Viva il Re!
Con esso i canti echeggiano
Rullano i tamburi le trombe squillano squillano
Cantici di gloria eleviamo con fervor
Viva l'Italia, l'Italia evviva ! Evviva il Re!
Viva L'Italia, evviva li Re! Evviva il Re!
Viva l'Italia! Viva il Re! Viva il Re!
Tutta l'Italia spera in Te, crede in Te,
gloria di nostra stirpe, segnal di libertà,
di libertà, di libertà, di libertà.
Quando i nemici agognino
i nostri campi floridi
dove gli eroi pugnarono
nelle trascorse età,
finché duri l'amor di patria fervido,
finché regni la nostra civiltà.
L'Alpe d'Italia libera,
dal bel parlare angelico,
piede d'odiato barbaro
giammai calpesterà
finché duri l'amor di patria fervido,
finche regni la nostra civiltà.
Come falange unanime
i figli della Patria
si copriran di gloria
gridando libertà.

English Translation[edit]

Long live the King! Long live the King! Long live the King!
Dip, o Regiments, your Standards to our King!
Italy's Glory and Fortune Lie with Him
Savoy's Grand Soldiers, Cry Out "Long Live the King!"
Dip, o Regiments, your Standards to our King!
Long live the King! Long live the King! Long live the King!
The trumpets joyously sound
Long live the King! Long live the King! Long live the King!
With this, the cries echo
The drums roll, the trumpets sound and sound again
Canticles of glory we fervently raise
Long Live Italy, Italy, Huzzah! Long Live the King!
Long Live Italy, Long Live the King! Long Live the King!
Long Live Italy, Long Live the King! Long Live the King!
All of Italy puts her faith in you, believes in you,
glory of our race, sign of freedom,
of freedom, of freedom, of freedom.
When the enemy comes seeking
our flourishing fields
where heroes fought
in the bygone ages
as long as our fervent patriotic love lasts
as long as our civilization reigns
The Italian Alps will be free,
angelic speech will reign,
the hated barbarian
will never set foot here
as long as our fervent patriotic love lasts
as long as our civilization reigns
As a single phalanx
the sons of the Fatherland
will cover themselves with glory
shouting "Freedom!"
