Prince Amedeo d’Aosta “was always very affectionate, a great gentleman and a man of the sea. He was a polyglot, had contacts with various royal families in Europe, was never pedantic but cheerful and dialoguing, and was passionate about history “. Prince Guglielmo Giovanelli Marconi, nephew of the Nobel Prize in Physics in 1909 and descendant of the Alighieri family, thus remembers with the Adnkronos the death of Prince Amedeo, Duke of Savoy and Duke of Aosta, who died at the age of 77. “We had always known each other – explains Giovannelli Marconi – he attended my parents’ wedding in 1966 on behalf of the Savoy royal family who could not participate because they were in exile. With my mother, a sailor, he was united by a great passion for the sea. was a great man of the sea and of the navy “. Prince Giovannelli Marconi has many memories linked to the Duke of Aosta: “The last time we met was six years ago at ‘Porta a Porta’ for an episode dedicated to the Romanovs – he concludes -. I have always remained in contact with his family. I saw his son Aimone in Rome in 2019, while in Venice I always had the opportunity to see his daughter Bianca Arrivabene and in Forte dei Marmi, where I go on vacation with my mother, her other daughter, Mafalda “.
