Emanuele Filiberto of Savoy, Prince of Venice (Emanuele Filiberto Umberto Reza Ciro René Maria di Savoia), is an Italian television personality, a member of the House of Savoy and the son and heir of Vittorio Emanuele, Prince of Naples. He is the only male-line grandson of Umberto II, the last King of Italy. As one of the two heirs of the disputed headship of the House of Savoy, Emanuele Filiberto styles himself as "Prince of Piedmont and Venice". However, due to the dynastic dispute, he does not hold the title of Prince of Piedmont.
Emanuele Filiberto grew up as an exile from Italy, in accordance with the provision of the Italian constitution prohibiting the male issue of the Savoy kings of Italy from entering or staying on Italian territory. Since returning to Italy he has made many appearances on national television, including his participation as a contestant in "Ballando con le stelle" (the Italian version of "Dancing with the Stars"), and the Sanremo Music Festival. He is married to French actress Clotilde Courau.
