Is there any difference between "orientamento" and "orientazione"?

The difference is slight: perhaps compare it to choosing between use vs utilize. They mean essentially the same thing, and I don't think anybody would punish you for using one or the other, yet use is more prevalent. I would say the same goes for orientamento: unless you're delving into some complex sociological topics, it covers all your bases.
