In the latest interview Prince EF gave to DIVA mag, there's no mention to his cousin Aimone's son.

The new Prince of Piedmont was born just a few days ago.
It would depend on when the interview was given, what questions were asked of EF, and what, if anything, was edited out.

I also had the same thoughts. I really do not know exactly when the interview was given, but since he said he's happy to have got to the semifinal in the show "Dancing with the Stars" or whatever it's called, I assume he must have been interviewed shortly after. The show is aired on Saturday evenings.

I found this on An Online Gotha, geneweb, Monarchies of Europea and Henri van Oene's site.

In hindsight they appear to have left the door open for an Aosta heir to assume it, which is what has happened, although maybe they were hoping that EF would have a son to carry the Piedmont title.
Well, they are royals

Maybe they doesn't have any radio, TV or newspaper...

If we accept that Emanuele Filiberto is a Prince of Savoy with the style of Royal Highness, his daughters are Princesses of Savoy and Royal Highnesses as well.
Those who don't accept EF's royal Savoy status will deny the same to his daughters.

If we don't accept EF is a Prince of Savoy, but only His Excellency Emanuele Filiberto di Savoia, Prince of Venice (the title given him by the King), his daughters are "only" Donna Vittoria and Donna Luisa di Savoia of the Princes of Venice.

what a shame that the Italian media always give a lot of importance to "stars" like Fabrizio Corona or reality "stars" and didn't report this news!

Because they are a republic now. They don't have a monarchy so basically they are considered normal people (they just have royalty in their Ancestry)

No, they don't consider them like normal people, but like showmen; so people like EF, who attends TV-show "Ballando con le stelle", is sometimes considered by medias; people like Aimone, who lives quietly in Moscow and works, who have a job and a "normal" life, but is more a prince then the other one, is not considered by medias...When the daughters of EF were born, italian medias made us know the news.

Olga and her sister were born as Royal Highness, without rights to the Greek throne but royal Highness.

Since the wedding of Her parents was (and is) morganatic, she and her sister were accorded the title of Princess of Greece, but not the style of Royal Highness.

Perhaps not HRHs formally, but many publications refer to them as Royal Highnesses. Even if incorrect, the style seems appropriate for both Princesses.

Athough she was never antitled to that style, many publications refered to the former Princess of Wales as Princess Diana. Even if incorrect, the style seemed appropriate for a princess whose first name was Diana.

So, if you don't mind referring to Lady Diana Spencer as Princess Diana, you probably won't care if Princess Alexandra of Greece is styled as Royal Highness.

I guess the reporters are not interested in styling people correctly. Styling them more glamourosly in the newspapers would catch attention faster and it would make them sound more important

In the books "Le Petit Gotha" and "Descendance de Louis-Philippe I " and on the site of the Duke of Aosta, Olga is H.R H. by birth.

on A Magazine was written that the baptism of the prince may be soon in the Masseria the couple bought last summer in Puglia. Is there somebody who knows something more on this house?

If it makes you feel any better no one in Greece even heard that the wedding took place in Patmos last September. let alone know about the baby. No newspaper or TV channel made any announcements.

And also no one in Italy, until duke Amedeo told about the marriage in a TV show after some days...
