Campari has recently launched its 2014 calendar entitled ‘Worldwide Celebrations’. The calendar is the 15th edition in the prestigious collection and stars Hollywood actress Uma Thurman enjoying 12 intriguing and vibrant festivals from around the world.
From Spring Festival in Beijing, the biggest celebration in China, to Hanami in Japan, where people enjoy the beautiful cherry blossoms of spring, the 2014 calendar provides a window on the world and invites fans of Campari to embark on a global voyage of discovery. The celebrations in the calendar span every continent and also include Midsummer’s Eve in England, during which revellers celebrate the Summer Solstice at the historic Stonehenge, and the bright and exhilarating Reveillon in Brazil, the biggest New Year celebration in the world. Uma stars as the calendar heroine adorned in a collection of beautiful dresses and shoes from luxurious fashion houses such as Versace, Stella McCartney and Chopard, to name just a few.
On starring in the 2014 Campari calendar, Uma Thurman comments “The 2014 calendar is a stunning piece of artwork and perfectly conveys the positive energy and pleasure which Campari lovers around the world can enjoy through our worldwide celebration. The calendar photographer, Koto Bolofo, has been fantastic to work with and inspired me throughout the shoot. There is nothing more enjoyable than a celebration and I feel confident that people around the world will enjoy the worldwide celebration which the Campari calendar provides.”
The 15th edition of the Campari calendar was shot by noted fashion photographer, Koto Bolofo, renowned for his lively and dynamic imagery. Bolofo was born in South Africa, raised in the UK and now resides in France so is a true world citizen himself and the perfect choice to convey the calendar’s worldwide celebration.

Working with Uma has been a joy and I am truly thrilled that the Campari Calendar 2014 can be revealed to the world and enjoyed by all.“
