Prince Emanuele Filiberto and the right of succession to the former Italian throne

Does anyone here know if Prince Emanuele Filiberto is grooming one of his daughters (probably his eldest daughter) to succeed him as the claimant to the Italian throne once he and his father will both pass away?


It's an interesting question because if he will do this, the schism among Italian monarchists will likely become permanent and irreversible.

As far as I know, there's no basis on this because of these points:

* The former Italian Kingdom under the House of Savoy follows Salic Law.
* Under the current Constitution of the Italian Republic, there is an entrenched clause that says the republican form of government cannot be changed by constitutional amendment. Meaning, any attempt to restore the monarchy is forbidden. (The constitution also forbade male descendants of the House of Savoy from entering Italy up until 2002 when it was removed when Vittorio Emanuele as the last claimant to the House of Savoy, renounced all claims to the throne as part of the agreement.)

A logistical problem to this scenario is that Prince Emanuele Filiberto resides primarily in California, while Princess Clotilde has stayed in France. The couple are not legally separated, but they do live rather separate lives. Luisa and Vittoria have remained with their mother.

The situation is rather like that of King Umberto II and Queen Marie José; where the King wound up living on his own (for the most part) in Portugal, while the Queen established her residence in Switzerland and brought up their children. Obviously, though, Umberto and Marie José were living separately on purpose, because their marriage had foundered, whereas there is not evidence to suggest that is the case with their grandson Emanuele Filiberto and his wife Clotilde.
