We've got the anti-Borromeo.

Donna Giacinta of the Princes Ruspoli is running with a catholic right wing list of candidates at Rome's next local elections.

Houses & yacht

Hi, Count, in what house he lived Prince Alliata when he was in Palermo? It 'true that spent much time at the Grand Hotel, had a yacht? and what was his name?
I would like elements about his private life on his houses, and habits, for a book I'm writing.

Thancks a lot.

Prince Don Giovanni Del Drago, Prince of Antuni and of Mazzano, died during the night between 28 and 29 May 2016 in Roma, after a long illness, aged 82.

He was born in Bolsena on 8 September 1933, the eldest child and only son of Don Rodolfo Del Drago and of his wife, née Anne Marie Wallace. He succeeded to his uncle Urbano as Prince Del Drago, Prince of Antuni and of Mazzano, when the latter died in 1959.
He was unmarried and without issue. He is survived by his sister, Donna Maria Angelica.
He was also the adoptive son of Donna Ornella Ravaschieri Fieschi, of the Dukes of Roccapiemonte (1904-2004); she was his father's cousin and the last descendant of the Ravaschieri Fieschi family; after the adoption he changed his surname, which became Ravaschieri Fieschi Del Drago. Donna Ornella had been the first wife of Prince Karl von Schönburg-Waldenburg, himself the only son of Prince Friedrich von Schönburg-Waldenburg and his first wife Princess Alicia de Borbon.

E' morto il principe Giovanni del Drago - Tusciaweb.eu

I believe that he will be succeeded in his titles by his second cousin, once removed, Don Clemente del Drago, Marquess of Riofreddo (b. 1947); he is married to Donna Priscilla Matarazzo (of the Counts of Licosa) and is the father of two sons, Don Ferdinando and Don Alessandro.

Don Carlo (of the Princes) Giovanelli died in Rome on 25 September 2016, aged 74.

He was the second and youngest son of Prince Giuseppe Giovanelli and of his wife, née Countess Franca Giulia Fogaccia. He was born on 14 January 1942 in Rome.
He married in 1966 to Donna Maria Elettra (of the Marquesses) Marconi (born on 30 July 1930), the daughter of Guglielmo Marconi (1st Marquess Marconi and the inventor of wireless telegraphy) by his second wife, née Donna Maria Cristina (of the Marquesses) Bezzi Scali. They became parents of one son, Guglielmo Giuseppe Giovanelli Marconi (he at a point took both the surnames of his parents).
IIRC, later Don Carlo and Donna Elettra divorced, although she keeps referring as his wife (i.e. in his death announcement she is referred to as his wife).
He is survived by his (former?) wife Elettra, their son Guglielmo with his wife Vittoria (née Rubini), his wife Prince Alberto Giovanelli with his wife Letizia (née Caproni, of the Counts of Taliedo) and their daughters.
He was better known in Italy as a socialite.

His funeral was celebrated on 28 September 2016 at the Church of S. Carlo in Roma.
The ceremony was attended - beside the relatives - by Emanuele Filiberto of Savoy, Prince Raimondo Orsini d'Aragona and his wife Kethevane (née Princess Bagration-Moukhrani), Marchioness Marina Ripa di Meana.

What sad news and what a horrible eath, esp. at such a young age. His poor family must be devastated.

https://www.theguardian.com/uk-news/...-knightsbridge

He was the eventual & only heir of the main line of the family.

How immensely cruel to take this beautifull young life.
How devastatingly sad for the Orsini Family.

What a horrible death and what a nightmare for his family, especially his poor parents who must be inconsolable.
