It is a small party called Alleanza Monarchica.

The royalist UMI asked Prime Minister Renzi to bury the last two royal couples at Pantheon in Rome:


U.M.I. - SACCHI SCRIVE A RENZI PER LE SALME DEI SOVRANI

The royalists of UMI took part in a march in Varese to commemorate the battle of Biumo:

The royalists of UMI asked the cancelation of the 139 article of the Constitution (that forbids to discuss the form of government) last Saturday meeting in the Saint Apostles Square in Rome:

Emanuele-Filiberto di Savoia is against the ideas of the italian royalists of UMI:

The same should happen in Portugal.

There are many monarchists in Italy?

Actually art. 139 doesn't forbid the discussion on the form of government, but it states that the form of government can't be changed by amending the Constitution (of the Italian Republic). Basically it says that the Parliament cannot amend the republican Constitution, turning the Republic into any other form of government (included monarchy, but also i.e. a dictature).
Is the UMI perhaps hoping that the Parliament of the Italian Republic will one day pass a law which amends the Constitution of the Italian Republic turning it into a Constitution of the Italian Monarchy? That would be quite silly.

I think UMI wants the Parliament to change the Constitution so the form of governemnt can be discussed and changed.

It was the same in Brazil until 1988, it was impossible to change the form of government. So the Head of the Imperial House wrote to the Congress complaining about how unfair such a thing was. Since then, it's possible to change the Brazilian form of government, we evem had a referendum on the issue.

The point is that the form of government theorically can already be discussed and even changed, but not changed by amending the current constitution. If the Italian people wanted to change form of government to the monarchy, a new Constitution should be written and approved, and not just the current constitution amended.
Art 139 doesn't say that the form of government can't be changed; it says that the republican form of government can't be changed by a constitutional amendment.
It is pretty much a useless provision, that's true, because no republican parliament would ever dream to amend the Constitution in order to change the form of government. But at the same time it's uncorrect to say that that article forbids discussing and ultimately change the form of government.

"Art. 139:The form of Republic shall not be a matter for constitutional amendment."
The article itself can be canceled but the real challenge would be a new Constitution.
