Capuleti e Montecchi, by Bellini: the nonsense of war
Giulietta is wondering who won the war between Capuleti and Montecchi and sings: "chi cadde? Ohime', chi vinse?" (Who died?, alas, who won?).
The music clearly shows how dramatic is the first and especially the second question.
The deeply sad melody of those phrases shows with evidence how in war nobody wins.
