George Clooney's famous Italian pal to officiate his wedding

Washington: George Clooney's upcoming wedding ceremony with Amal Alamuddin will be conducted by his Italian pal Walter Veltroni, who's not only a writer, journalist and politician, but had served as mayor of Rome.

The news was confirmed by a representative for the Venice Municipality to a magazine.

Veltroni, 59, is a close friend of the 53-year-old Oscar winning actor, who had even likened him in the past to US President Barack Obama.

However, this won't be the former mayor's first celebrity wedding, who had also written the preface to the Italian edition of Obama's 2006 book The Audacity of Hope, as he had been invited to Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes's 2006 nuptials in Bracciano.
