I heard that; after all he's a poor Prince. But there's an aristocrat that is known for not paying at all, although he's supposed to have a lot of money, thanks to holding several public offices. He's called "the Marquis-pay-not". I was told by my hubby's ex boss, who's a friend of the owner of Cortina's finest restaurant...

There are many Tosca, rich or not some people prefer not to pay. If I could write I a list, I would need many many pages!

There is a Marquis living in the North of Italy, that if you are in a bar with your drink, he sees you and of course in that moment you become his best friend...hoping that you offer him something to drink!

Roman dukes and prices are known to attend only parties or balls where they not pay...

I agree with you Tosca!! The wedding has been attended by people from the international jet set, for example the princesses Lee Radziwill and Maria Pia of Savoy and the designers Luisa Beccaria and Diane Von Furstenberg

Diane von Fuerstenberg was the ex-wife of Egon, the late son of Clara Agnelli, so she's related to Coco and Bianca.

Count,
Many years ago there was a Contessa Sammartini of Venezia promoting Venetian blinds in Autralia (good idea no?) she was an interior decorator. Do you know who she is? She was said to have a palazzo on the Grand Canal.... I have often wondered about her, she seemed very nice to talk to.

Yes, Counts Maurizio and Barbara Sammartini are the owners of the most beautiful private building in Venice: Palazzo Pisani-Moretta on the Grand Canal. Maurizio is an architect, a good thing when you own such a jewel!
Every year during the carnival they host wonderful masked balls
Have a look to www.pisanimoretta.com
