It isn't the same thing at all. The decree of the Pope means that now she can be beatified, but doesn't mean that she has already been beatified. The decree is just a premise, a prerequisite necessary for the beatification.

Several pieces of jewellery that belonged to the Duchess of Genoa, née Princess Lydia of Arenberg will be on sale at Christie's Auction in Geneva. The auction will take place on November 12:

Among the jewels being sold are pins and necklaces of other members of the House of Savoy, including a pearl and diamond brooch which was given to Princess Lydia by Queen Elena for her wedding.

Just in case anyone's interested, Noblesse & Royautes have also linked the auction's catalogue, which has more information about the jewels and a preview of the auction which is taking place in 5th Avenue, New York. You can find them here and here.

After the dissolution of the monarchy and the exile of the royal family, Italy passed a law which banned all male descendants of the House of Savoy from entering Italy. In what year was the law lifted?

Having fought in the War of the Spanish Succession, Victor Amadeus II, Duke of Savoy, became King of Sicily in 1713. However he was forced to exchange this title and instead became King of Sardinia.

Only the descendants of the former Kings of Italy (VE III & UII) were barred from the country. This effected solely three persons at the time: King Vittorio Emanuele III, King Umberto II and Vittorio Emanuele, Prince of Naples (to be eventually joined by his son Emanuele Filberto).

The members of the Savoy-Aosta and Savoy-Genoa branches were still free to live in Italy; some examples are the current Duke of Aosta and the late 4th Duke of Genoa and his younger brother the Duke of Bergamo.

The ban was lifted in 2002.

The ban was estabilished by a provision of the republican Constitution; it affected "the ex-kings of the House of Savoy, their spouses and their male descendants". Therefore not only King Vittorio Emanuele III, King Umberto II, Prince Vittorio Emanuele and later his son Emanuele Filiberto were affected by it, but also Queen Elena (the wife of Vittorio Emanuele III) and Queen Maria José (the wife of King Umberto II).
Later in 1988 the ban was temporarily lifted for Queen Maria José, who was allowed to make some short visits to Italy. The reason for it was that, since King Umberto II had died five years earlier, she wasn't any longer the "spuse of an ex-king of the House of Savoy" and therefore no longer bounded by the ban.
