Today, Campari® is officially unveiling the full imagery for the 2014 Calendar which is 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.
