The song originates from the unhappy love of the author Vincenzo Russo, a modest shoemaker, for Enrichetta Marchese. The union between the penniless poet and her girlfriend, daughter of a jeweler, was strongly opposed by her family, despite Russo's love being reciprocated. The verses, composed at the end of 1899 by Russo, were set to music between 1 and 2 January 1900 by Eduardo di Capua, famous author of 'O sole mio, as well as Russo's friend.
