Marina, Crown Princess of Italy, Princess of Naples (née Marina Ricolfi-Doria) (born 12 February 1935) is a Swiss-born water skier who married to Vittorio Emanuele, Prince of Naples. The titles of the Italian Royal Family are not recognized under the terms of the republican Constitution of Italy. However international precedent is that former holders of certain posts continue to hold their former title as a courtesy title in their lifetime. Marina Ricolfi-Doria is the daughter of René Italo Ricolfi-Doria (Cologny, 30 April 1901 Geneva, 4 February 1970) and wife Iris Benvenuti (Pallanza, 14 January 1905 Geneva, 10 September 2004), who owned a Swiss biscuit business, sister of Silvia, Nina and Alda and brother Dominique. In 1955 Doria went to Florida and became a star attraction at the Florida amusement park Cypress Gardens. She was a world-renowned water ski champion winning world titles on three occasions to gain the titles of Women Tricks World Champion in 1955 and 1957, and Women Slalom World Champion in 1957.
