On Sunday, George and his lovely wife Amal made a special visit to Rome to meet Pope Francis and members of his arts foundation, Scholas Occurrente. The exciting meet-up followed a few days of romantic outings in Rome.
According to sources, the couple met with Francis to talk about their plans to help the religious leader's foundation. Mr. Clooney will reportedly serve as an ambassador for one of the organization's projects.
Per the org's website, the mission of Scholas Occurrente is to "promote social integration and the culture of encounter for peace". It's not surprising the duo is collaborating with the foundation's mission considering Amal is an activist and human rights lawyer herself. Not to mention the actor is a longtime supporter of charities and other global peace efforts.
Prior to the special gathering, the pair enjoyed an unbelievable dinner at eatery Dal Bolognese overlooking the city's Rome's Piazza del Puopolo. According to insiders, the outing was exceptionally perfect and picturesque.
A staff member gushed to Us Weekly of the fine dining experience:
"They ate antipasto with Italy's finest prosciutto, buffalo mozzarella cheese and culatello, a very fine cured ham from Emilia Romagna. All the food was washed down with an expensive wine from one of the most famous Italian wine producers, Gaja, particularly famous for top red wines."
Yum! Color us totally jealous!
We'll be sure to keep you updated on the rest of the couple's trip and their upcoming work with the foundation. We bet the Pope really appreciates Amal and George's help!
