"I carry the spirit and blood of my father, mother and my ancestors. My family tree has many branches but all equally important. I cherish the memories that make its roots run deep. We all grow up with the weight of history on us. My body is the embodiment of all my ancestors who came before me. My identity is through that line".



Salvatore Caputo was born in a noble family in 1942 when Italy was a kingdom ruled by the House of Savoy, kings of Italy since the Risorgimento and previously rules of Savoy. But after 4 years, monarchy was abolished by popular referendum in June 2, 1946. Italy became a republic.

At the age of 15, he was brought up in Canada where after he spends his life traveling to Brazil, Guatemala and Philippines as a prominent director of multinational Corporations. Since he became conscious of politics, there has not been a president who he felt was a satisfactory symbol of the countries visited, and who he could admire as a focus for non-partisan patriotism. This is essentially why he came to support monarchy?..although his enthusiasm for royalty dates from childhood.

Don Salvatore Ferdinando Antonio Caputo is a monarchist that believes that a hereditary Monarchy, with a Sovereign, non-corrupt one with religious values and culture and tradition, conducted with immense kindness and whose role was thrust upon him by accident of birth rather than by being a politician, is the most perfect form of government in a nation.  

Contrary to a Republic's President (like France, USA etc.) the Sovereign will insure the continuity in a time schedule. He/she is always aware about important files and he/she acts to push these files up to their conclusion. That is not the case for a president. When his period will be ended, he will return to the everyday's life and another President will come with his idea and who knows how.

Mr. Caputo supports the present heads of exiled or non-reigning Houses as de jure sovereigns, this recognition being co-existent with the realization that the institution is more important than a particular claimant. A monarch through the vestiges of that misunderstood Divine right and because of his symbolic paternal role faces a higher responsibility than a state government.

The justification of the hereditary succession is not only in the upbringing of the future king, not only in the continuity of a line  but in the fact that an hereditary ruler does not owe his position to any particular social or interest group, but rather to divine will alone. The formula "by the Grace of God" is a constant reminder to the sovereign that an accident of birth was responsible for his position and must prove his fitness by ceaseless efforts in the cause of justice.

The monarch is always there, a permanent symbol of the state and man's relationship to it. The modern monarch is often above the fray of partisan politics, an advocate for his nation's principles, if not its specific governmental policies. Today, a monarch may reign but not rule. The interest of monarchy is to serve, to serve the country, the people and not be served.

It is a misconception to imagine that the monarchy exists in the interests of the monarch. It doesn?t. It exists in the interests of the people. It is sometimes said that Country can never be a really modern state while it still has a monarchy. This of course ignores countries like United Kingdom, Japan, Spain, Norway, Sweden, Denmark, The Netherlands and many others all of which are modern constitutional monarchies in modern countries where majority of the people of those nations have absolutely no intention of removing their monarchy because of the benefits they recognize they derive from it.

On the subject of disputed successions in former monarchies and concerning non-reigning royals he undertakes ?tolerant? attitude of neutrality though not impartiality, in certain cases, he has a candidate he considers the legitimate one.

He advocates of the establishment, preservation and restoration of a monarchy and stays neutral on the issue of juridical recognition of reigning and Sovereign Houses, which is of exclusive competence of their respective State Systems and desires exclusively to support their traditional humanitarian commitment at the service of international collaboration.

Caputo speaks and writes fluently Italian, English, Spanish, and Portuguese, read French.  

His Company Caputo International Ltd was founded in September 1985, Toronto, Canada, in December 1990 in U.S.A. and in Guatemala on March 1993. Mr. Caputo was educated in Italy, Canada and US.

While Salvatore Caputo Family is descended from an ancient lineage, having with time in-depth studied nobility law, he makes no claim to royal, princely or ducal against what might appear on some websites or blogs and makes no pretension or claim to be such.

Salvatore Caputo is decisive and often stubborn, so much so that it is not easy to make him change his mind. A great worker and he is fully committed to achieve the goals he proposes. In the sentimental sphere, he is faithful and traditionalist.

Inspired by the principles of virtue and honor and the highest values of Christian culture, the Illustrious House Caputo aims to preserve the historical memory of the family traditions. To maintain alive the values of family legacy expresses the preservation of memory of the nobility so essential today for the transmission of authentic virtues, moral values and aspirations of a collective family and its members over time.

All families have a set of beliefs, values, and attitudes that are passed down from generation to generation through the messages that children receive from their parents.

Family legacy captures the history, culture, experience, values and aspirations of a collective family and its members over time. Family legacy expresses where the family has come from as well as where they are headed together.
