The Italian Almanac

Cindy Crawford

Italian News - August 7

Former American top model, Cindy Crawford, spent a couple of days this week holidaying on Lake Como with her husband, Rande Gerber. The couple arrived in Italy in two helicopters – one just for their luggage – from Monaco. They are believed to be vacationing as guests of George Clooney, who is spending the summer at his villa in Laglio.

Ms Crawford’s husband is a close friend and business partner of the American film star. The holiday adds the lovely Cindy’s name to the list of stars who have fallen under the lake’s spell. Since George Clooney, who owns three lakeside villas, arrived on Lake Como, the area has witnessed a steady flow of A-list celebs, including Hollywood stars like Brad Pitt, Angelina Jolie, Michael Douglas, Catherine Zeta Jones, Julia Roberts and Matt Damon, well as rock personalities like Bruce Springsteen and Sting.

Before the end of August, glamorous George is scheduled to head back to Los Angeles, where he will be shooting on the huge film set that Warner Bros has built for Ocean’s Thirteen. In the meantime, his Laglio villa is a magnet for big-name stars.
