Italian term or phrase: glacida
From the Italian song "Santa Lucia"

..... Glacida e' l'onda.........
Joseph D. Cicero
English translation:> see below <
Explanation:
Umm, you're the victim of a typographical error. The word in the song is "placida," not "glacida"... "Placida e' l'onda" is literally "peaceful the wave"; an English rendering that scans rhythmically might go something like "gentle the swelling wave". == Best, HC

Explanation:
It is a spelling mistake.
the right Italian term is "Placida", not "Glacida",that is to say " calm, placid", and I think that in this context "placid" would be the best choice.
Hope to help you.
