I may understand that when King Umberto died he was sure he was the last King of Savoie.

You're not totally wrong, and this can explained (and can be explained by) the fact that His Majesty wanted the seal of the Kings of Italy to be buried with him, under His armpit.

Prince Victor Emmanuel wins court battle against Duke of Aosta

Italian aristocrat cousins fight over defunct throne - Telegraph

The family of Italy's last king are locked in a bitter court feud over who has the right to lay claim to the country's defunct throne more than 60 years after the monarchy was abolished. The battle pitches Prince Victor Emmanuel, the son of Umberto II, against his third cousin, Duke Amadeo of Aosta, both of whom are descended from the 19th century king of Italy, Umberto I.

But now a court in Tuscany has finally ruled the 73-year-old prince is the true heir to the dynasty, which has its roots in the north-east of Italy and ruled the whole country after it was unified in 1861. It ruled the Savoy royal title can now only be used by Prince Victor Emmanuel and his son, Prince Emmanuel Filiberto.
It also ordered the Duke of Aosta to pay his cousin £43,000 in compensation as well as the costs of the trial.

The court pointed out that the "dynastic squabbles underlying this affair" had no legal relevance to the modern Italian state because the monarchy had been abolished more than 60 years ago. It also highlighted the fact the prince was descended from the last king of Italy while the duke came from only a "junior branch" of the royal family. The court ruled that the duke's use of the Savoy name had been "unmerited" and ordered him to bring his "harmful conduct" to an immediate end.

I hope that has solved the issue 'once and for all'. Dynastic squabbles in the courts of law are most unbecoming any dynasty.

Of course, this decision of the Court regards a totally different matter then the dynastic quarrels.
This decision is about the legal surnames of Amedeo and Aimone in Italy: their legal surname is "di Savoia-Aosta" (for Amedeo since 1946, for Aimone since his birth), and they can't use another surname, even if only "di Savoia". In the Italian Republic they have a certain surname, and must use it.
The dinastycal quarrel is a completely different matter; nobody can say that Amedeo and Aimone belong to Savoy Family, and during the Monarchy Amedeo's official name was "His Royal Highness Prince Amedeo of Savoy", but only when Italy was a Kingdom; after the proclamation of the Republic his surname changed, but this has nothing to do with the quarrels about the Headship of the Family, that can't be solved by a decision of a court of the Italian Republic.

Another joined event:

Princess Marina, Prince Vittorio Emanuele and Prince Emanuele Filiberto
of Savoy visited the exhibition 'Casa Savoia e l'Unita d'Italia' (lit.: House
of Savoy and the Unification of Italy) at the Palazzo Saluzzo di Carde in
Turin, Italy, 03 May 2010. The exhibition held on the occasion of the
150th Anniversary of the Unification of Italy runs until 15 June.


Interesting to see that the youngest members of the family are also
included in the exhibition.

Princess Marina does have some wonderful Italian designed jewelry. I like her choker. She also seems to wear a lot of black outfits.

I think the Princess Marina and her son, Prince Emanuele look like they are mother and son. The Prince has her jaw.

She was a very glamorous when she was young.

Clotilde looks beautiful in both her outfits.
What a wonderfully traditional event.

The Order of St. Marice and Lazarus is being investigated by the Roman magistrates these days on account of slush and offshore (the Vatican) funds.

I can't find a news link to an investigation into the affairs of the Order but Wiki has this:

[In February 2006] all three of his sisters resigned from their positions as Dames of the Order of Saints Maurice and Lazarus. Princess Maria Gabriella has criticised her brother for instituting "the payment of membership fees [and] activities such as the sale of objects with the Savoy coat of arms and credit cards of the order".

Princess Maria Gabriella is definitely the most critic towards Vittorio Emanuele and Emanuele Filiberto among her sisters; but on that matter all three sisters agreed condemning the menagement of the Order (that was indeed tacky, imo).
And just to be even more tacky, in the last years VE and EF have taken out a patent on the coat of arms of Savoy Family (so Aosta cousins can't use them) and EF has turned into a stylist with his collection of clothers "Principe d'Italia" (Prince of Italy), of course using the coat of arms of Savoy Family...

Such a different style from the late King Umberto II
