Italian term or phrase: Ma tu che svelta m'hai la bestemmia orrenda
Opera I Masnadieri: Francesco, younger son, encouraged his father, Massimiliano, to banish his older brother Carlo, now brings news (faked) of his brother's death hoping to give the old man a heart attack.

MASSIMILIANO
(a se stesso)
Tigre feroce, qual sangue versasti!
Sul capo mio colpevole
l'ira de ciel discenda!
(Si getta sopra Francesco.)
Ma tu che svelta, o perfido
m'hai la bestemmia orrenda,
rendimi tu, tu rendimi
l'ucciso mio figliuol!
