The release of Money Heist season 4 truly gave us a break from the stress of the ongoing pandemic. And to make things interesting, let’s dig into the most trending song from the show “Bella Ciao”. The Italian folk became a smashing hit in spite of us not understanding a word of it.
So ‘Bella Ciao’ basically means ‘goodbye beautiful’ in Italian. It was a protest song that became popular in the late 19th century sung by the paddy field workers in opposition against the terrible working conditions that prevailed in the country during that time. Over time, people have rendered different versions of the song to mostly signify resistance. The lyrics are so powerful that Northern Italy, in fact, banned it in 2015.
The song is played at several instances in the hit show and there’s no way we can ignore the tempo and power it adds to the pacy screenplay.
