A curious and unrecorded imprint celebrating the anniversary of Chile's independence with a patriotic song in Italian. The song, dedicated by a group of Italian professors to Chile's Supreme Director Bernardo O'Higgins, is printed in parallel columns in Italian and Spanish. During the first years of independence, it was common in Chile to contract foreign professors for the teaching of various discipline - in this case, probably literature.
