Viva Cristoforo Colombo, ammiraglio Genovese (Admiral from Genoa) Here is the traditional video I post of these darling children singing about the Nina, Pinta and Santa Maria.
As we learned in school:
In Fourteen hundred and ninety two
Columbus sailed the ocean blue!
We learned the song in school since most of my hometown is of Italian descent. Schools put on plays and musicals to celebrate the day during the school week. It was a very big deal.
No school today in most of our towns here.
