HRH PRINCE EMANUELE FILIBERTO OF SAVOY VISITED NAPLES AND CILENTO

Naples –  5-6th May 2018

HRH PRINCE EMANUELE FILIBERTO OF SAVOY VISITED NAPLES AND CILENTO DURING THE WEEKEND OF 5 AND 6 MAY. THIS VISIT WAS IMPORTANT FOR PROMOTING THE CHARITY ACTIVITIES OF THE ORDERS OF THE ROYAL HOUSE OF SAVOY AND A SPECIAL CHANCE TO TAKE PART IN A UNIQUE EVENT OF GREAT RELIGIOUS AND POPULAR PITY: THE INVOCATION OF THE MIRACLE OF SAN GENNARO. THE PROCEEDS OF THE FINAL CHARITY EVENING EVENT WERE ALLOCATED TO CREATING A PUBLIC GARDEN WITH GAMES FOR CHILDREN IN THE MUNICPAL AREA OF CASTELLABATE.

NAPLES – The journey that S.A.R. Prince Emanuele Filiberto of Savoy completed the weekend between 5 and 6 May was born from the fulfilment of a desire that the Prince expressed last November in a conversation with His Eminence Cardinal of Naples, Crescenzo Sepe. That wish was to be able to take part in the celebration of the holy rites for the Miracle of San Gennaro, celebrations that take place every year on the Saturday prior to the first Sunday in May.

So Cardinal Crescenzo Sepe himself invited Prince Emanuele Filiberto to take part in this year’s celebrations and himself welcomed HRH publicly at the start of the sermon, in a basilica full of the faithful. The Prince also took part in the suggestive procession preceding the rite, from the Duomo to the Basilica of Santa Chiara.

That of the liquefaction is a miracle with great emotional impact. Historical documents date the first news of the miracle right back to 1389.  This occurrence definitely stands out as one of the greatest mercy moments for many Neapolitan worshippers and the miracle occurred this year too.

The following day, Sunday 6 May, the Prince visited Cilento accompanied by several Delegates of the Dynastic Orders of the House of Savoy, in a very cordial, participatory atmosphere also for the many civil and religious authorities present. The Prince then visited the rooms in Castle Vatolla which housed Gianbattista Vico for more than nine years, involved here as a preceptor.

The visit then continued towards Agropoli where he walked in the town’s medieval centre, welcomed by the Mayor, Mr Adamo Coppola, and the enthusiasm of many presents.

The Prince then took part in the inauguration of the exhibition “The Great War through the illustrations of ‘La Domenica del Corriere’ in the presence of civil and military authorities and servicemen associations. A truly evocative exhibition organised by the Salerno Delegate of the National Institute of the Guard of Honour to the Royal Tombs of the Pantheon and credited as of national interest by the mission Structure for the Great War Centenary Celebrations of the Presidency of the Council of Ministers.

The inauguration was followed by a solemn Eucharistic Celebration in memory of the Casualties of all wars and the dead Sovereigns of the House of Savoy, held by the Parish Priest Cav. O.SS.M.L. Pasquale Gargione in the presence of Prince Emanuele Filiberto, those decorated with the Orders and the Mayor of Castellabate, Costabile Spinelli.

The day ended with a charity dinner in the Hotel Hermitage of San Marco. More than one hundred people attended; that final moment of a very heartfelt visit that enabled Prince Emanuele Filiberto to remember how important the commitment to charity that characterises and distinguishes the work of the Dynastic Orders of the Royal House of Savoy truly is. The proceeds of the evening were allocated to creating a public garden with games for children in the municipal area of Castellabate
