We are beginning this post with these news:

Vittorio Emanuele has just been released from all charges from the criminal procedure against him in front of the Court of Como (for crimes connected with a gambling house). Now waiting to see wat happens in front of the court of Potenza.
There has been very few coverage about this releasing in Italy while all the medias were covering about "the king of Italy sent to jail".

Trust me, everything will come to nothing in Potenza, since the Prime Minister's spokesman was caught by a photographer whilst appraoching a transexual on a summer night last year.
One mag, belonging to RCS group, whose board is close to the current government payed a huge sum of money to make those pics disappear. But they surfaced again, and later a newspaper owned by the Berlusconi family mentioned the politician's name, but was prohibited to publish any photos, hence the scandal.

The average Italians do not care a bit if Vittorio Emanuele is proved guilty or not. The spokesman thing sounds more ingtriguing to them.

Well, it sounds terribly interesting indeed, and rather embarrasing for the poor man! But how does this relate to VE's case?

Well, the prosecutor tapping VE's phone also overheard a "paparazzo" tell his boss that he had a scoop, and they will have grown rich either by selling those photos to a mag (CHI and Novella, though refused to buy them, as there was a top politician involved) or by blackmailing this man. Needles to say that Fabrizio Corona the owner ( whose wife is Croatian model Nina Moric) of the photo agency has been arrested, and the photographer, along with other colleaugues of his, is been inquired into having actors, actresses, showgilrs, sportmen and even some politicians pay huge sums of money to stop their "compromising " pictures appearing in the press. An associate of Corona is also being accused of having forced some showgirls and starlets into prostitution.

The spokesman's pictures were published a few days ago. Actually there's nothing outrageous in them, as all you can see is the man letting his car windoew down and talk to the transexual. He might as well have asked for directions, after all his not from Rome....

poorman,from the beginning of this issue,I had the feeling that VE isn't guilty.I just couldn't imagine why a richman would make this adventure that will destroy his family reputation.

The Talent agent Lele Mora, who's been arested for sending aspring showgirls into prostitution, traffic in drugs and sexual harassment, was also VE's pr.
This explains the reason the Prince of Piedmont was investigated and then arrested.
I've always though VE isn't that smart to be a "gangster".

Succession to the Italian Throne

What do you think about the debate concerning the succession of the Savoy Royal House?

Well, should discussion concerns a country with reigning monarch it could be a very embarrasing but because Italy is not a monarchy it's seems to be only a rivalry between different membrs of the same family- eventually it's only a bit embarrasing....
And it give people something to talk about ....

A waist of time and money, but that's their own business, as the average Italians do not care a bit about them.

After this summer the website Casa Reale d'Italia was finally updated and also there are new sections (or I didn't saw it before....). The home page presents letter commemorating the 103 anniversary of birth of king Umberto II.
In section called "Press information" there's part dedicated to oficial dementi. IMO it was more than necessary due to the fact that often italian press "misunderstands" the real meaning of interview released by prince Emanuele or Vittorio. The most clamorous was interview for "Donna e Diva" in which prince Emanuele described himself as "republican" .

There was a short coverage about the Venaria reopening on the state-run tv the other day. They interviewed both Aimone, the Duke of Apulia and Emanuele Filiberto, of course separately, because the Savoia and the Aosta don't talk to each other. However Emanuele Filiberto said he still has great respect for Prince Amedeo he calls "my uncle".

I saw Prince Vittorio Emanuele and his wife Princess Marina, but didn't see Princess Clotilde at all.

Italian Government

If the Italian Government decided that they wanted to put the Italian Monarchy back into power, who would you want to see as the King? the pretender to the thrown Crown Prince Vittorio Emanuele of Naples or his cousin Prince Amedeo of Savoy 5th Duke of Aosta? After all of the bad publicity that Prince Vittorio of Naples has received from the "accidental" killing of Dirk Hamer to allegations of Anti-Semitism. or his cousin the Prince Amedeo who fathered a child out of wedlock?
