 Vicenzo da Filicaja once said...

Italia! O Italia! thou who hast The fatal gift of beauty, which became A funeral dower of present woes and past, On thy sweet brow is sorrow plough'd by shame, And annals graved in characters of flame. [It., Italia, Italia, O tu cui feo la sorte, Dono infelice di bellezza, ond' hai Funesta dote d'infiniti guai Che in fronte scritti per gran doglia porte.]

In Italy Quotes, by Vicenzo da Filicaja , Source: Italia, English rendering by Byron, "Childe Harold", canto IV, st. 42
