“To be a part of such a globally-renowned project for an iconic worldwide brand is a pleasure. I particularly admire the theme this year as I am able to share a worldwide journey of discovery, passion and style with Campari lovers around the globe. Each month, the true essence of a ‘global celebration’ has been captured beautifully thanks to Koto, a highly-acclaimed photographer with a keen eye for creating intriguing, stimulating and truly dynamic imagery.”

To work on this project with a beautiful and talented actress such as Uma Thurman is an honour, and has provided me with an opportunity to push the Calendar’s boundaries and defiantly capture the passion and style which is centred on this year’s truly inspiring theme.”
Bob Kunze-Concewitz, CEO of Gruppo Campari, comments: “The unrivalled legacy of the Campari Calendar is set to continue this year with the aim of delivering even more invigorating and inspiring imagery. Once again, boundaries will be pushed in order to stimulate peoples’ imaginations with a voyage of discovery each month to explore worldwide celebrations, and the theme this year couldn’t be more appropriate to do so. With this in mind, we very much look forward to unveiling the 2014 Calendar later on this year.”
