This poignant anthem helps volunteers amid floods in Italy

Entire areas of Italy’s Emilia-Romagna region have been stricken since suffering historic flooding and landslides that killed at least 14 people. Residents have mobilized to evacuate the massive amounts of water and mud that cover many villages, says TF1 News. Faced with the difficulty of the task, they find solace in a 1974 song that has become their anthem.

Covered in mud, the volunteers regularly interrupt their hard work for a few minutes to sing together Romagna Mia, a song originally performed by Raoul Casadei. This moving musical communion helps them to keep their spirits up and to find the courage to accomplish their work.

“A great pride” for the interpreter’s son

Mirko Casadei, the son of the track’s original singer, told la Repubblica be very touched by this recovery of the title of his father. “Hearing this song in the streets is a great pride,” he explained. He now wishes to help the inhabitants affected by these natural disasters. Mirko Casadei intends to join forces with the Region of Emilia-Romagna to organize a concert, the proceeds of which will be donated to the victims.
