Il Canto degli Italiani (Italian pronunciation: [il ˈkanto deʎʎ itaˈljaːni]; "The Song of Italians") is a canto written by Goffredo Mameli and set to music by Michele Novaro in 1847, national anthem of Italy. It is best known among Italians as the Inno di Mameli ([ˈinno di maˈmɛːli], "Mameli's Hymn"), after the author of the lyrics, or Fratelli d'Italia ([fraˈtɛlli diˈtaːlja], "Brothers of Italy"), from its opening line. The piece, a 4/4 in B-flat major, consists of six strophes and a refrain that is sung at the end of each strophe. The sixth group of verses, which is almost never performed, recalls the text of the first strophe.

The song was very popular during the unification of Italy and in the following decades, although after the proclamation of the Kingdom of Italy (1861) the Marcia Reale (Royal March), the official hymn of the House of Savoy composed in 1831 by order of King Charles Albert of Sardinia, was chosen as the anthem of the Kingdom of Italy. The Il Canto degli Italiani was in fact considered too little conservative with respect to the political situation of the time: Fratelli d'Italia, of clear republican and Jacobin connotation, it was difficult to reconcile with the outcome of the unification of Italy, which was a mold monarchy.

After the Second World War, Italy became a republic, and the Il Canto degli Italiani was chosen, on October 12th 1946, as a provisional national anthem, a role that it later preserved while remaining the de facto anthem of the Italian Republic. Over the decades various parliamentary initiatives have taken place to make it the official national anthem, up to the law n ° 181 of 4 December 2017, which gave the Il Canto degli Italiani the status of a national anthem de jure.
