“Time To Say Goodbye”

(English Version) Lyrics
Vocals: Andrea Bocelli and Sarah Brightman

Sarah
When I’m alone I dream of the horizon and words fail me
There is no light in a room where there is no sun
and there is no sun if you’re not here with me, with me
From every window unfurls my heart the heart that you have won
Into me you’ve poured the light,
the light that you found by the side of the road

Time to say goodbye
Places that I’ve never seen or experienced with you
Now I shall, I’ll sail with you upon ships across the seas,
seas that exist no more,
it’s time to say goodbye

Andrea
When you’re far away I dream of the horizon and words fail me
And of course I know that you’re with me, with me
You, my moon, you are with me
My sun, you’re here with me with me, with me, with me

Time to say goodbye
Places that I’ve never seen or experienced with you
Now I shall, I’ll sail with you upon ships across the seas,
seas that exist no more,

Both
I’ll revive them with you
I’ll go with you upon ships across the seas,
seas that exist no more,
I’ll revive them with you
I’ll go with you

You and me

Italian Translation

Con te Partirò

Sarah
Quando sono sola
sogno all’orizzonte
e mancan le parole,
si lo so che non c’è luce
in una stanza quando manca il sole,
se non ci sei tu con me, con me.
Su le finestre
mostra a tutti il mio cuore
che hai accesso,
chiudi dentro me
la luce che
hai incontrato per strada.

Time to say goodbye.
Paesi che non ho mai
veduto e vissuto con te,
adesso si li vivrò.
Con te partirò
su navi per mari
che, io lo so,
no, no, non esistono più,
it’s time to say goodbye.

Andrea
Quando sei lontana
sogno all’orizzonte
e mancan le parole,
e io si lo so
che sei con me con me,
tu mia luna tu sei qui con me,
mio sole tu sei qui, con me,
con me, con me, con me.

Time to say goodbye.
Paesi che non ho mai
veduto e vissuto con te,
adesso sì li vivrò.
Con te partirò
su navi per mari
che, io lo so,
no, no, non esistono più,

Both
Con te io li rivivrò.
Con te partirò
su navi per mari
che, io lo so,
no, no, non esistono più,
con te io li rivivrò.
Con te partirò.

Io con te

Marostica-Chessboard-Bochelli

Marostica is an ancient medieval town and like most others, there is an ancient gateway to walk through to enter. This town has four gates and back in the middle ages all four would have had a drawbridge and spotting tower. The main gate is called Porta Castello (Castello gate).

When walking through the Porta Castello in front of you can be seen the famous Piazza degli Scacchi (Chess Board Square). It is recognisable by the huge white and slightly pink coloured chess board paved with Asiago stone.

The Piazza degli scacchi is famous worldwide for the chess game with living characters (people and horses) that takes place every two years in September on even numbered years. It brings back to life the atmosphere of a medieval town with colourful costumes and ancient music with over 550 live pieces taking part.

The story behind the chess game is of two suitors who both want to marry the daughter of the local Lord. Instead of fighting a duel for her, they agree to play a game of chess and the winner will have the hand of the beautiful Lionora.

The loser of the chess game would also join the family, through marrying her younger sister, Oldrada.

During the play the game takes place on the square in front of the Lower Castle with supporters carrying the noble ensigns of Whites and Blacks, in the presence of the Lord, his noble daughter, the Lords of Angarano and Vallonara, the court and the entire town population.

The Lord also decides the challenge would be honoured by an exhibition of armed men, foot-soldiers and knights, with fireworks and dances and music”. This literary account has nothing to do with factual history and the chess square in the city was built after the Second World War and after the writing of the play.

This fictional story is now re-enacted in the main square of Marostica every second Friday, Saturday and Sunday of September of even-numbered years. The orders are still given to the cast today in the local Language.

It is well worth exploring the lower middle ages castle and the upper castle which takes a couple of hours on foot. The trail is partly cobble stone and dirt tracks so comfortable shoes are recommended. The trail leads through olive groves and once at the top of the hill you can walk around the well-kept ramparts and enjoy wonderful views both southwards and northwards towards the Asiago plateau, taking in the pristine landscapes.
