Italian prince Emanuele Filiberto — grandson of Italy’s last monarch, King Umberto II — obviously likes to keep busy. Last year he participated in the TV show “Ballando Con Le Stelle” (Dancing With the Stars) and won. Then he ran for European parliament. Now he is a contestant at the Festival di Sanremo (Sanremo Music Festival).
Here’s a video of the prince performing the song “Italia Amore Mio,” which he reportedly wrote himself. According to Wikipedia, he was eliminated in the first round of voting but was later “saved” and continues as one of the contestants.
