Clooney, Bullock, Johansson ride Maserati at Venice Film Festival


The inauguration ceremony of the 70th Venice International Film Festival featured world renowned international stars arriving on the red carpet in the style and elegance that only a Maserati can deliver.

Among these stars included host of the event, the stunning Sicilian-born top model and actress Eva Riccobono and the breathtakingly beautiful actress and producer Sandra Bullock, who had all eyes on them as they each arrived in a Maserati Quattroporte. Also to arrive in the luxurious four door saloon and Trident Marque’s flagship, none other than Hollywood’s biggest heartthrob George Clooney and one of the most famous working Italian directors in the world, Bernardo Bertolucci, who is also this year’s Chair of the International Jury for the Competition of the 70th Venice International Film Festival.

Sandra Bullock and George Clooney both star in this autumn’s eagerly awaited science fiction thriller Gravity, directed by the very highly acclaimed Alfonso Cuarón, best known for his films Y Tu Mamá También (2001), Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban (2004) and Children of Men(2006).

The evening marks the beginning of Maserati’s relationship with the 70th International Film Festival of the Venice Biennial as main sponsor of the event, cementing the relationship between the prestigious film festival and the Fiat Group.
