THE LAST QUEEN OF ITALY TV SERIES AND FILM ON QUEEN MARIE JOSE OF THE ROYAL HOUSE OF SAVOY

   THE LAST QUEEN OF ITALY  
SERIES ON MARIE JOSE OF SAVOY
We haven't seen any films on them, methinks, but the grandson of THE LAST QUEEN OF ITALY, prince Emanuele Filiberto di Savoia will team up with
Marie Jose of Belgium was the last queen of Italy
Chinese director Yi Zhou in producing a TV series and then also a film on his grandmother Queen Marie Jose known as ‘The May Queen’, as she reigned for just 35 days. She was known as a radical royal who helped try to topple Italy’s fascist leader Mussolini and pleaded with Hitler to help the Belgian people (her father was king of Belgium). She lived in exile for years and died in 2001 aged 94. The Royal House of Savoy TV series, set to shoot in Fall 2022, will depict the beginnings of Marie-José, the young maverick princess as she grows into an independent woman, then dutifully fulfills her destiny of wedding a handsome prince. After that, in 2023, the plan is to shoot a movie as well. 

DEZZY'S HISTORY LESSON
Following Italy's defection to the Allied side in the war, her discredited father-in-law, King Victor Emmanuel III, who supported the Nazis, withdrew from government. Her husband became acting monarch and Marie-José became

Queen consort of Italy, and remained such until the monarchy was abolished by plebiscite, on 2 June 1946. During the war, as she did not agree with her father in law's politics, and she sympathised with the partisans, she was sent to Switzerland, but from there she smuggled weapons, money and food for Partisans.

  3. Sounds like she led a very interesting life, fighting for the people and against oppression. I think today's youth could learn a thing or two from her.
