If in 1946 more than a half of the population was more or less in the favour of the Monarchy in this moment the royalists are quite few and the Royal Family not enough known. I suppose 90% of the Italians does not knoe who is Crown Prince Aimone of Savoy.

I may not think very highly of Vittorio Emanuele, Prince of Naples, but Emanuele Filiberto is a charming man and would make a delightful King. Somehow, I am sure that some time in future, the Monarchy in Italy will be reinstated.
Italy would be much stronger and more unified with a Monarchy taking care of business!!

Is there a genuine wish among wide segments of the Italian population of restoring the monarchy?

It's not my impression from the albeit few Italians I've met and talked with about the situation in Italy.
However, all of them express a loathing for the political class!

Do you think a monarch could be a balance against the nationalists who are on the rise in Italy?

I doubt it considering that Vittorio Emanuele III actively supported Mussolini's fascist regime.

All the Italians I know, without exception, would be strongly opposed to any restoration, though most seem to have sympathy or respect for Umberto II.

The current Italian Constitution, designed largely to prevent the rise of another extremist to power, spreads power very widely, giving very little to the President of the Republic. In many ways, replacing the President with a constitutional Monarch, and perhaps an officer of state to arbitrate and chair negotiations on the Monarch's behalf, would not be such a big change. Even if there were ever a serious upsurge i support for the restoration of a monarchy, the major problem would be that there are too many rivals, within the Savoy family and among the old reigning families in the regions and provinces.
