George Clooney and his girlfriend Amal Alamuddin will be married at the end of September in Venice. Their union will be registered by Voltaire Veltroni, the former mayor of Rome.
Veltroni, who served as mayor of the Eternal City from 2001 to 2008, will be married on September 29 at the former Doge's Palace, Ca 'Farsetti. The actor’s friendship and politics began when Clooney arrived in Rome to receive an award for his contribution to humanitarian assistance in the Darfur region of Sudan in 2007.
In 2009, the Hollywood star returned to the capital of Italy with his film “Leatherheads” and spoke very warmly about the mayor of the city. “He is my good friend, like President Obama,” Clooney told reporters. people who have something special, a desire for leadership and a speaker’s talent, like Obama’s. I feel the same with Veltroni. "
The winner of the prestigious Academy Award announced in April that he was engaged to his girlfriend. The representative of the actor confirmed that the wedding will take place, but declined to give an exact date for the ceremony. Meanwhile, Clooney did not try to hide his plans to marry Amal in one of the most romantic cities in Italy. “I met my beloved bride here in Italy. And it is here, in Venice, that we will get married in a few weeks,” Clooney shared his plans in early September.
Representatives of the yellow press initially insisted that the couple marry on September 6 this year, but the representative of Clooney denied this information: “We did not indicate the exact date. I can only confirm that the wedding will be held in Venice,” he said.
The news that the beautiful Alamuddin managed to win the love of the 53-year-old womanizer, shocked and admired the friends, relatives and fans of the actor. The media, meanwhile, began to vying with each other to speculate on where the couple would tie the holy knot. Amal and Clooney first appeared in public as a couple last October in London. Since then, the future husband and wife almost never parted.
Clooney was previously married to American actress Talia Balsam from 1989 to 1993. However, after the divorce, the Hollywood star showed no signs of constancy, often appearing surrounded by models and aspiring actresses. Like his future wife, Clooney is an ardent defender of human rights, which he demonstrated when he went to Darfur. Alamuddin also worked at the international tribunal that studied the case of the assassination of Libyan Prime Minister Rafiq Hariri, and also took an active part in the efforts of former UN chairman Kofi Annan (Kofi Annan) to establish peace in Syria.
The British law firm, in which the future Mrs. Clooney works, speaks of the girl in the most flattering way. The CEO, Robin Jackson, commenting on the upcoming wedding, said: “Amal is a wonderful woman. One brings light wherever she appears. And I am very happy for her.”
Alamuddin's list of clients includes the founder of the site WikiLeaks and Julian Assange (Julian Assange) and former Prime Minister of Ukraine Yulia Tymoshenko. Leading legal specialist Jeffrey Robertson, who worked with Amal on the affairs of Tymoshenko and Assange, told reporters that all employees of the company “appreciate and adore” the girl. "Amal Alamuddin is a brilliant and dedicated human rights defender who has worked hard to improve them."
