Recently I was looking to different italians sites just to find some information about probable date of baptism for little princess Louise but the only info regarding future event was related to prince EF. So he is supposed to participate the 5th and 6th of february in procession dedicated to Sainte Agathe (to be held in region of Catania).

A video from the Sagas, it's a french program sorry about this.
It's at the beginning of the video.
There aren't pics about Vittoria and Luisa just old pics and videos about Emanuel and Clotilde. (TF1)

Thank you very much Lucidu! This video tells us a few (positive) words about EF and CLotilde. They are really pleasant as people I would say....

EMANUELE FILIBERTO
According to quotidiano.net prince Emanuele Filberto is one of owners of restaurante called "Il Quirinale" which was opened few months ago in Geneva. The restaurant became alreay fashionable; it includes also the pizzeria when the "pizza Savoia" or "pizza margherita" are served.

You think so? If so, very subtle if not simply regional cadence?

Clotilde's English is fairly good. It is fluid but appears to be the product of her colloquial American English usage.

Prince Joachim of Denmark speaks English very well and so does QM II (British accents). CP Frederik however has quite an accent.

I think so! The Piedmontese/Turinese dialect sounds way different!
You anglophones may mistake the sounds of the N/W Italian dialects for French accents, but that's not true: ask the French.

Besides, EF grew up in the French speaking part of Switzerland, because as a male descendant of the Savoia family he was prohibited from coming to Italy.
Moreover, all the members of the Savoia family have always spoken French among themselves for centuries, as this was the official court language.
King Vittorio Emaunuele II spoke no Italian at all; he knew just French and the Piedmontese dialect.

You may be right. I will have to listen to EF a bit more closely and preferably for more than a quick comment when leaving an event.

Have heard many a French accent when speaking English and EF's English is not particularly remarkable as some one whose first language was French even though it may have been the case.

Was aware of the balance of your comments. Other than speaking English, I am far from an Anglophone. I was raised speaking a few romance languages but I am far from an expert on accents and the like.

Suppose in the end it doesn't matter as his words and speech whatever accent have next to no effect on royal scholarship.

Well, I heard him interviewed on the TV the other day, and it seems that livng in Central Italy has helped him to polish his Italian pronounciation: he seems to be loosing his French "r".
He still has problems with the subjunctive and the conditonal, but that's OK.
Many other Italians, who have never left their country, have the same problems with verbs...

Can you comment on CC’s back ground? Your comments are greatly appreciated,

Clotilde Courau's father lives currently in Africa. He's separated from Clotilde's mother, who comes from a noble background and is herself noble.
The Courau family is from middle-upper classe, the Pontavice family (Clotilde's mother is Catherine du Pontavice) belongs to the French nobility.

Clotilde Courau, Princess of Venice and Piedmont, pictured taking her daughter Vittoria di Savoia at dance class in Paris's downtown. Paris, FRANCE-14/02/2007

Pictures:

Clotilde and Vittoria 3
Clotilde and Vittoria 4

Gallery of pictures from Isifa

Isn't it quite obvious from the pictures that Vittoria loved dancing?
