Palazzo Papadopoli: the Greek Connection at George Clooney's Wedding in Venice

the setting for the wedding reception of George Clooney and Amal Alamuddin

George Clooney, the world's most sought after bachelor, gets ready to relinquish his title as he ties the knot with British-Lebanese human rights lawyer Amal Alamuddin on Saturday in Venice, possibly the most romantic city in Italy.

And the party? Well, that's going to be at the Palazzo Papadopoli ...

Yes, you guessed correctly, Papadopoli as in Papadopoulos...the Italian version of the most common Greek name ever!

The Palazzo Papadopoli was built in the 1550's, and is an opulent Renaissance style palace, with rooms bedecked with magnificent paintings and historic wall frescoes.

In 1864, Counts Nicholas and Angelo Papadopoulos, who had come from Corfu (Kerkyra) in Greece, chose this stunning palace for the Papadopoulos family HQ in Venice.

George and Amal, 
Kala Stefana! 

Our best wishes to to you both for a long and blessed life together!!
Να ζήσετε! 

PS We particularly like this couple because they have taken up a cause very dear to our hearts, and the hearts of all Global Greeks:
the Return of the Parthenon Sculptures!
