The electronic structure of V2O3 was studied. A model was proposed in which S = 1 V3+ ions were coupled in the vertical V-V pairs. Formation of twofold orbitally degenerate configurations was evident with S = 2. In the antiferromagetic insulating phase, the description of the ferro-orbital ordering of the V-V pairs gave consistent results.
