Abstract

Between July and September 1924 Umberto of Savoy, Prince of Piedmont and hair to the Italian throne, embarked on a journey taking him to Brazil, Argentina, Chile and Uruguay. The trip was to all intents and purposes a diplomatic mission and was encouraged by the Fascist goverment wich saw it as an opportunity to establish a bond with the numerous immigrants of Italian origin and their descendants who had started a new life in Latina America. One of objectives of the visit was in fact to advertise through the figure of the young prince a positive image of the new goverment (not yet explicity a “regime”) and of the House of Savoy. This research article follows Umberto’s itinerary, focussing especially on the Argentinian leg of the journey, taking into account sources ranging from newspapers and periodicals, narrative literature and the officials reports published after the visit.
Entre julio y septiembre de 1924, el príncipe de Piamonte y heredero al trono de Italia, Humberto de Saboya, emprendió un viaje hacia cuatro países de América Latina: Brasil, Argentina, Chile y Uruguay. Se trataba de una misión diplomática que respondía a las exigencias del fascismo para establecer una relación con los numerosos inmigrados y sus descendientes presentes en tierras latinoamericanas. En efecto, uno de los objetivos era difundir, a través de la figura del joven príncipe y futuro rey, una imagen positiva del Gobierno (que aún no era declaradamente un «régimen») y de la Casa de Saboya. El presente articulo de investigación analiza mediante una metodologia cualitativa las etapas del viaje, haciendo particular hincapié en las estancias argentinas, y valiéndose de fuentes como la prensa diaria y periódica, la narrativa, y los informes de viaje editados después de la visita del príncipe.
