Oft she visits this lov'd mountain, Dido's attendants's aria from Dido and Aeneas

Oft she visits this lov'd mountain,
Oft she bathes her in this fountain;
Here, here, Acteon met his fate,
Here pursu'd by his own hounds,
And after mortal wounds discover'd too late.
Translation into Italian by Ugo Berardi (added 1997-12-21)
Italian translation of Oft she visits this lov'd mountain, 
	2nd Woman's aria from Dido and Aeneas

Spesso lei visita questo amato monte,
spesso si bagna in questa fonte;
qui Atteon incontrĂ² suo fato,
dilaniato dai suoi stessi cani,
e per le mortali ferite,
scoperte, troppo,trppo tardi,
Attean qui incontrĂ² suo fato.
