„Vitia Ciao”

Every war and revolution has its songs, which aim is to unite people and keep the faith in what they are fighting for. One of the most famous songs is the song of the Italian anti-fascist partisants a song called „Bella ciao”. Even nowadays, this song is often used by demonstrators around the world, we can even say that this is the anthem of all the people who are fighting for freedom.

On November 30, 2013, the specific militias of Berkut brutally dispersed demonstrators camped on the Maidan, among them there was a journalist Azad, who was injured. It was a signal for him to create a song that will uplift human spirit. The inspiration became a song of Italian partisants. His version of ''Vitia Ciao'', which meant a symbolic farewell to Victor Yanukovich. The author of the text was Iryna, a young activist who since many years are fighting in the name of her party called ''Young Democrats'' against the power of Yanukovich.

Olga sang – the editor of the TV channel, which has so far not taken an active part in the revolution. Everything was created in one day, in underground conditions. The song became rapidly an unofficial anthem of revolution. His words saying goodbye to the president, were heard not only on the Maidan, or only across the country but also during a demonstration of support of Ukraine in the whole world.

The song was recorded spontaneously by people not associated with the music industry, because nobody from famous stars decided to take a such brave step. Nobody knew when the revolution will end and they did not wanted to risk. If people from Maidan would lose the revolution the star would be persecuted. For Azada, Ira and Olga making such a song was a civic duty.

With the sudden success of the song, there appeared also complications in the lives of the song producers. Olgas mother, who works in a state institution, was examined many times and threatened with dismissal. Iryna roommate, after a series of threatening phone calls, moved out of flat for the time of the revolution. On the other hand, after Yanukovich escape it could seemed that this song is prophetic. It predicted, for example, that the residence Mezyhiria will become a museum.

Telling the story of the creation of ''Vitia Ciao'' we will tell the stories of young people who, for various reasons get involved in revolutions and each of them are experiencing it in a different way.
