Right, but this marquis happens to be richer than the duke.

I wondered about that, but the lack of diamonds around her neck misled me.

Well, despite his riches he pretends to be a left winger, may be this is why she didn't wear any diamonds... Besides she doesn't wear furs anymore, since she's become an animal right activist. So why need all that money???

She also has a website (in Italian)
MarinaRipadiMeana Official Web Site


Marina's daughter duchess Lucrezia Lante della Rovere.(gossipnews) She's an actress

Tosca,do you know from which Italian princely family Princess Barbara Massimo comes from?

Have you ever heard of Francesco de Mosto,who comes from Venice? I saw him on BBC World's 'Top To Toe' in which he travelled from Genoa down to Palermo,& showing us castles & art,& talking in both English & Italian along the way.

Aidan.

Sorry, I never heard of Francesco de Mosto!
As for Barbara Massimo, she is the daughter of the last male descendant of the Roman Quintus Fabius Maximus consul, a.k.a the Cunctactor, this enabling them to boast of being the most ancient Italian noble family we know of. Barbara owns her exotic looks to her mother, who's originally from Latin America.

You can find a photo gallery of their castle in Central Italy at:

She's a beautiful woman, though... I don't know them, but I have certain simpathy for Lavina, as she works, even if she is one of the few people that doesn't need to... I once read this interview and I made a nice opinion of her:

It´s interesting. Was there a full article about her and the Duino castle? Unfortunately Prince Carlo Alessandro is not always at home and very busy. He must have many plans. I have read that a part of his castle was sold. But I like is sympathic caracter, even if I -until now -did not have the possibility to visit the castle. Has anybody visited it?

Here is the family picture. It was send to me by Carlo´s secretary Marcuzzi (who is also very kind!)

The della Torre e Tasso family looks lovely, as does their castle. I'd like to know more about them. What does Princess Costanza's father do that keeps him so busy? Does the family live in the castle, or is it just for visitors? Do they no longer have the fortunes that their ancestors had to maintain it?

Can anyone provide information or photo about the Family SENATORE BOURBON DAL MONTE SANTA MARIA TIBERINA?

I think that they had the title of Marquis and not prince/ss, but I would like to know more about this family.

I read some time ago that they are one of most ancient family in Italy. It seams that they 've got 900 years of history.

thanks
