It was announced the engagement of marchesa Elena Ricci Paracciani Bergamini, the daughter of princess Maria Eleonora Massimo and a grand-daughter of HRH princess Adelaide of Savoy-Genova to a certain Magneti Marelli: is there a real guy whose name is that?

Probably the bridegroom is only a member of the Magneti Marelli's owner family, even if I knew this factory joined Fiat group many years ago.

Honestly I do not know, sorry!

Thanks for the answer! The lady in question seems to have Slavic features. I might be wrong in my assumptions.

Isabella is the sister of Lavinia Borromeo, who's married to John Elkann, and the half sister of Beatrice Borromeo, Pierre Casiraghi's girlfriend.
Ms. Sozzani is the current companin of Alain Elkann, John's father.
Sounds more complicated than in "The bold and the beautiful"!

Alain Elkann is married to Rosi Greco, but they are divorcing. They say that Franca Sozzani, that is the director of the magazine Vogue Italia, is the "reason" why they decided to divorce, .............. who knows!

Yes, this is a very sad news. She, and all her family, was very respected in Italy.

Today has also died Don Massimo Cordero dei Marchesi di Montezemolo, father of FIAT and Ferrari President Luca Cordero di Montezemolo. He was 89, and is survived by his wife Clotilde and three sons, Luca, Marco and Daniele.

I have to correct you, Tosca: Allegra and Marella are not sisters, but first cousins.
