Eva is a former model, and the wife of Roberto Cavalli, the fashion designer.

Thanks Tosca. My mind strayed to those photos with the hand holding friend of early summer.
BTW I love Roberto Cavalli's work. Wish I had the figure for it.....

I don't remember if this short interview was already posted. It was made at the time of second pregnancy of CLotilde. What was interesting from my point point of view it was Clotilde trying to speak italian. She really tried but the effect wasn't so good. She couldn't remember simple italian words,the accent was sometimes terrible "nascitaaaaaa"). It was obvious that Clotilde and Emanule are using french to speak among themselves.

I do not understand what that article said. However I read in Point de Vue that EF now that he is done dancing on TV he is launching a clothes line he will name "Prince of Italy". The logo of the clothes will be the family crest........What's next??

For example, the exile law has prevent him from learning Italian and so he can't speak Italian well...I remember this was one of the reasons of the indemnity request...

I am confused. His parents are both Italian. They could not teach him the language because of some law??

His mother is not italian, but swiss; however if he want to learn Italian, he can do it, even if he is out of Italy; his father and his aunts grew up out of Italy, but they can speak Italian...

That was shocking!!In other words,Aimone was not allowed to speak Italian as well,right?I wonder in which language he communicates with Olga,since they have learnt completely different languages and which language will their child learn as his mother tongue.I guess the most possible is English.

The Aosta branch was not exiled from Italy following World War II.

Aimone was born in Florence, he grew up in Italy and attended university there, and he does speak Italian. Presumably, he also knows French, English, and Russian.

Also, it is safe to say that Olga is fluent in at least English and French. I wouldn't be surprised if she has also studied Greek (& Italian too)!

Thanks for the information McAfan. I thought Marina Doria was Italian.
I am still confused about the law though. Sounds like a poor excuse to me not to teach their son Italian in the privacy of their own home, because of some law.

About Olga:I'm sure she speaks Greek.Not only it's her parents' mother tongue and Olga was born and lived in Athens as a child,but she was also proposed to work as a TV journalist/announcer during the Olympic games in 2004.I guess Greek is one the first languages she learnt.

I am not 100 % certain but it only makes sense that she is also fluent in French and English.

Oh,yes.Of course she is.They lived in Paris-after Athens-and her parents still live there.I'm just mentioning the reasons that make me think Olga also speaks Greek well.

Or probably he was a bad student...I think that, above all after EF, during an interview, talked about the beautiful town of Piazza Armenia in Sicily, while the real town is Piazza Armerina...

But the worst gaffe is this one: a video of EF totally drunk...
