The study deals with the complex and evocative history and genesis of the first De Rada’s poem: Canti di Milosao.In the early nineteenth century historic scenario, while Albania was reduced to a mere geographic expression within the Turkish-Ottoman Empire from the multi-century and oppressive foreign domination, the Italian-Albanian community (or Arbëreshë) produced a great movement of "awakening" of identity, better known as the movement of the "Rilindja" (rebirth). The greatest exponent of this literary movement is the Calabrian-Albanian Girolamo De Rada (1814-1903 ) who published in Naples in 1836 “Canti di Milosao”, when he was just twenty-two. The poem marks the entrance of Albanian literature into modernity and represents one of the highest literary expressions not only of the Arbëresh (Italian-Albanian) literature and of Albanian literature but also of all European romantic literature.
