Digital Diary - Friuli Venezia Giulia, Italy - 7 Days, 7 Artists, 7 Videos...

I was contacted by one of the producers of the Digital Diary series when they first produced the first video in Basilica, since then they've produced a newer one in Friuli Venezia Giulia - it's by far one of the most interesting takes on showcasing Italy and it's amazing regions. They have 7 artists, (producers & camera people) travel within 7 days of their designated project and shoot their 7 videos, which then becomes the digital diary masterpiece. Here's a bit of their explanation on what they do:

'7 Artists. 7 Days. 7 Videos.
We’ve imported some of the most creative minds around to work on our Digital Diary of Italy. We’ve got young photographers, video makers, animators on the project to give us their impression of Italy.
Totally subjective. Undemocratic. Creative."

George Clooney & Celebrity Friends Raise Tons Of Money For Darfur Charity.

George Clooney is a good guy. If there is a definition in the dictionary for good guy, there should be a picture of him right next to it. Now, we all know George isn't Italian, but he might as well be. He's taken a strong interest in the Italian culture and actually owns a villa in Lake Como, Italy. So, I guess I will declare him an honorary Italian.

OK, so moving onto why he's such a good guy. He recently organized a charity event in Venice, Italy with his other celebrity Ocean's co-stars--Damon, Cheadle, & Pitt, which raised millions. Now this past Thursday, he coordinated and participated in another charity event where in total he and other celebs like Kid Rock and Bono and Scarlett Johansson raised a whopping 14.57 million for the people of Darfur.

I think its amazing and honorable that George Clooney has goals outside of Hollywood and uses his celebrity to help others. Bravo George.

Hard Rock Cafe Grand Opening In Venice, Italy.

When you think of the Hard Rock Cafe you think New York, Las Vegas, all the American hot spots, but now when you think Hard Rock you can also think Venice, Italy. The Hard Rock Cafe will be making a grand entrance onto the Venetian scene very soon with a perfect location overlooking the St. Mark's gondola area. Its the second location to open in Italy. Italians love anything rock n' roll or American, so I'm sure this Hard location will be super successful. I'll have to check it out next time I visit my cousins in Venice.
