I don't know how reliable this is, it's from the Province of Como (an official site or not?) - I also have to admit that I understand only a bit of Italian, but:

Yes, they say that George and Amal are on their way, and that the Obamas are expected too.

The fact that they've closed the car park on the other side of the road says it all - not normally the case when just family and friends are there. This is the local paper, Carol. Usually right - I think they have a hotline to the Mayor of Laglio! Interesting timing. There were headlines in the States saying the Obama family were heading for Provence...

Well, the local newspaper has all the logistics of the visit - and they're apparently arriving on Friday - and the Clooneys ahead of them at some point.

The Obama by Clooney

«Consecration of the Lario»

Resounding guests Expected for Friday the arrival of the former US president and wife

The "king of cashmere" Cucinelli: "An important sign and a tribute to beauty"



The news that Barack and Michelle Obama will be guests of the Clooney has also caused a sensation on the Milanese catwalks, where since yesterday the men's fashion for spring-summer 2020 is the protagonist.

Brunello Cucinelli, in the Lombard metropolis to present the new collection, comments: "The arrival of characters of the Obama caliber is a very important sign for the territory, a tribute to its value and its beauty". The king of cashmere, as he is now known in the world, is a great admirer of the first black president of the United States.

«He has always struck me not only for his vision of the world, but also for his way of communicating. With that education, that kindness, that grace that our culture seems to have lost and that I would also like to find again in everyday life ".

Cucinelli confesses that he keeps portions of Obama's speeches alongside the books of the emperor Marcus Aurelius. Not only. «In my collection of busts of Roman and Greek philosophers there is also that of Barack in white Carrara marble. I had him do it just because I also consider him a myth ». The designer adds another reflection. "I think it is no coincidence that he chose Lake Como for his holidays: it is a place that predisposes to thinking, which makes you feel in harmony with yourself".

Undoubtedly the former tenant of the White House will want to take a holiday break at Villa Oleandra, where the staff of the security staff has settled. Already in recent days, a certain coming and going of plain-clothes agents had been noticed. Moreover, the visit of the Obama is in all respects comparable to that of a head of state. In addition to him and Michelle, the two daughters, Sasha and Malia, are also to be protected from the onslaught of reporters, photographers and curious.

It is easy to imagine that the reception of the very important family has been taken care of in every detail by the villa's staff, before the super control of George and Amal.

The two will have just enough time to unpack before receiving the Obama, arriving next Friday with a private flight at one of the two Milan airports.

If it was the mayor who leaked the information he needs to learn to shut up. 

I know they are all used to this , but I find it annoying this is a private visit .

Annemarie, there is no way the public in the village would not be aware of the security blanket involved, and if they've closed the public car park which is opposite d'Oleandra it would mean further consultation with the Laglio council. This is the only road to go through the place.

Impossible for anyone to ignore the helicopters, no doubt divers and large numbers of suited FBI types who have descended on the place. Past presidents are afforded the same level of security as the present one I believe.

The mayor/town had to deal with these logistics last year, didn’t they? Last year it was Prince Harry and Meghan. I would guess there was vast amounts of security for that visit. It will be hard not to notice the huge security detail that will be there for the Obamas.

Actually I think the Duke and Duchess of Sussex are, if you like,a bit more of an undercover operation . The Royal Family have never had a huge security press that we know of. Not so long ago the Queen was on a horse riding down the Mall for Trooping the Colour at Horse Guards parade. I couldn't have told you who of those, say 'footmen', 'outriders' on horseback, were her security. Obviously all the police on duty for the crowds that day all had a purpose, but the spectacle itself has never been compromised.

Last night I was at a meeting in London - and only discovered later that Prince Harry had just left! That's how it is. And most of the Royal Family today are at Royal Ascot for the horse racing where top hat and tails are de rigueur. Security is without doubt there - but very discreet.

Harry and Meghan went to George's on his plane and who knew they were there at the time? Mind you, I wouldn't be that surprised if the Obamas go to see them too as they're this side of the pond! We really only know what they want us to know, but the geography of Lake Como makes it all a bit more public....

As far as I could find, other than "In Touch" doing a bit on Sasha and Malia's clothes, the press here has made no mention of the Obamas being in France or Italy.

Granted I did a really quick search, but it seems the Obamas manage the press very well.They seem to get coverage when they want it and avoid it when they don't. Good for them!

I googled ‘Obama Italy’ and there is nothing about this trip. There are reports about the family vacationing in southern France right now but that’s it. Hmmm, got to wonder if the Italian news got this right. We shall see.

Clooney arrived in Laglio

Waiting for Obama

The American actor reached Villa Oleandra late yesterday morning and had lunch in the garden



Clooney arrived at Villa Oleandra ready to receive Obama. Two days to go before the Obama's arrival at Villa Clooney di Laglio, and even yesterday the police chiefs gathered in the prefecture to define the complex security plan in the places that the former presidential couple will visit.

It is not known how many men will be engaged between policemen, carabinieri, a finance guard and American secret security agents. Certainly the organizational effort is considerable, comparable to that of a state visit.

Already tomorrow evening the air space will be closed on the city and the lake. The flights will be prohibited until Monday, the date of departure of the illustrious guests from Laglio.

The most critical routes will be those from the airport to Villa Oleandra. The Obama family, currently on holiday in Provence, will travel to Milan on a private flight. Once landed, they should move to the star's residence in the car, armored and protected by adequate escort. The kilometers to be covered will be manned, it is easy to foresee also the closing of the access roads to the Via Regina, at the passage of the procession.

From the sound of this I don't think anyone will get close enough to take a picture. If we see anything it will either be something George and the Obamas release themselves or something taken from really far away with a telephoto lens.

I just hope they have a fun, safe weekend and it turns out they don't really need all those security forces.

You'rde right, Lizzy.

Maybe look at the usual suspects for blurry pap pix at the private airport over the hill, unless of course they all go out to one of George's favourites

[size=30]Spaghetti for Barack[/size]


[size=30]and pizza for Michelle[/size]


[size=30]Our Viviana will take care of it[/size]


[size=30]Even the twins adore her baby food. The presidential couple loves Italian cuisine[/size]


[size=30]Click[/size]
[size=30]Challenging days await you, even if you now know perfectly your favorite dishes, diets and intolerances of the VIPs who frequent Clooney's house.[/size]


[size=30]The kitchen of Villa Oleandra has already been occupied by Viviana Frizzi, from Lomazzo, from 2008 George's personal cook. The star decided to take it after having tasted his risottos and gnocchi with pesto.[/size]


[size=30]Extremely reserved, very trustworthy, it has also conquered Amal. So much so that she moved to London, in the property bought by the Hollywood star, after her marriage. Not only that, "Vivi" as Mr. Nepresso calls it, follows the couple wherever they move.[/size]


[size=30]It seems that the twins Ella and Alexander like very much her baby food. After all, Frizzi started cooking very young, winning many prizes. The apprenticeship at the Tarantola restaurant in Appiano Gentile was a great school and then the experiences gained working alongside other great chefs.[/size]


[size=30]Except for a few hidden paparazzi exits, in the next few days she will be able to delight Obama with her delicacies on Saturday (the departure from France seems to have been delayed by one day).[/size]


[size=30]Sources close to Villa Oleandra let us know that no catering was called. No need, for some time to help Frizzi there is her husband, also a very good chef. The service will be attended by the staff of the hosts. Since there is Amal, Villa Oleandra is better structured than a starred restaurant, with selected suppliers and well-stocked wine cellar.[/size]


[size=30]You can bet that Vivi has already "compiled" the daily menus for the former White House tenants. Michelle is a convinced healthy woman, in the years when her husband was president, she tried to put America on a diet, urging her to eat better and do more physical activity. Thus was born the vegetable garden inside the Washington palace, where he taught his daughters, and all the children of the United States, the importance of swallowing not only fries or "gummy bears" candy, but also real fruit and vegetables to prevent serious diseases such as diabetes. Her only caprice, the vegetarian pizza.[/size]


[size=30]Barack is often tempted by fast food, without worrying about the calorie count. The two share the same passion for Italian cuisine. The former first lady was immortalized by an American magazine with a nice plate of pasta.[/size]


[size=30]Even Mrs. Clooney grants her occasionally, committed to safeguarding size 38. The lawyer does not smoke, she drinks very little alcohol and never away from meals, her lips have never been touched by tex-mex food for which consort is crazy. His diet includes organic vegetables and very little meat.[/size]


[size=30]You will probably leave a little to go to Laglio, thanks to the holiday and the arrival of the Obama family. What is certain is that he will have to welcome her with a toast. With which Italian wine? Prosecco Aneri, of course.[/size]


[size=30]When Barack won the elections for the first time, the next day he went to Chicago to the Italian restaurant "La Spiaggia" to celebrate with the bubbles of the famous winery.[/size]

Laglio, Obama at the Clooney home

Pizza, spaghetti and lots of relaxation

Pier and parking lot closed to the public from Saturday 22 to Monday 24 June



Saturday 22, Sunday 23 and Monday 24 June. Unless it is a red herring, the former president of the United States of America, Barack Obama, will arrive a day later than announced with his wife Michelle and his two daughters at Villa Oleadra di Laglio, guest of George and Amal Clooney.

The big event is approaching and the fever is rising. On Wednesday 19 more and more tourists stopped on the road to photograph Villa Oleandra and maybe the illustrious landlord who would come out with his Harley in the afternoon. The hosts will pay great attention to the illustrious guests who will spend much of their time on the Lario at Villa Oleandra. Everything is ready even in the kitchen where they are ready to face every request, knowing that Barack and Michelle Obama love Italian cuisine very much. Spaghetti for him and pizza with vegetables for her.

In the afternoon, many people did not miss the 118 helicopter rescue maneuvers above Villa Oleandra. Even a technician was immediately lowered from the aircraft, immediately recovered on board. From what has been learned it was not an emergency, but a mapping of the areas ideal for interventions at night. In this case the helicopter stopped above Villa Castiglioni, practically on the border with Clooney's; later he also tried a similar maneuver in a town of Lenno (Tremezzina).

Meanwhile, additional security measures have been arranged to ensure the privacy of Obama and his family. From Saturday 22 to Monday 24 access to people and vehicles at the Laglio pier is prohibited.

  • Obama family will be guests of George and Amal Clooney in Lake Como Friday

  • The next stop of their jet-set European tour takes them to Clooney's Italian villa

  • Barack, Michelle, Malia and Sasha will fly into Milan from Provence on their jet

  • 300ft radius around George Clooney's mansion is to prevent unwanted visitors

The next stop on the Obama's European jet-set tour will be George Clooney's mansion on Lake Como.
Former president Barack and first lady Michelle, as well as their daughters Malia and Sasha, are to be the Hollywood actor's latest guests at his luxurious home in Laglio.
The governor of Laglio has decreed that fines of 500 euros ($565) will be in place for any vessel or vehicle approaching within 300ft of the Villa Oleandra, which is usually accessible to the public unlike typical A-list properties.
The Obamas will reportedly take their private jet to Milan from Provence where they are believed to have been staying at a $60,000-a-week villa in the Châteauneuf-du-Pape wine region.

The family will join Clooney and his wife Amal at a charity dinner for The Clooney Foundation for Justice on Saturday evening after their arrival on Friday.

George and Amal Clooney on the red carpet in Los Angeles earlier this month
Mayor Roberto Pozzi confirmed the government was taking a number of security measures for the Obamas who have been pictured flanked by a secret service detail in France. 
'The parking lot at the back of Villa Oleandra will be closed for two days, Saturday and Sunday, because it should be available for the security service cars. In the territory and also on the lake, numerous men and law enforcement agencies will be in service,' he told Estadao.
The Riva Soldino beach nearby and the town's pier will be closed to everyone except boat owners over the weekend, and even the water surrounding the villa will be in the exclusion zone.
In addition, there is a warning to potential drone pilots that their craft will not be tolerated close to the property. 
The Piazza Barelli will be closed and parking is not permitted to accommodate TV broadcasting crews.  


Pozzi told Il Giorno it was 'an exceptional promotion for our territory and a great honor.'
He said of the inconvenience caused, 'For such a great honor, there is a price we must pay,' ANSA News agency reported.

Since their arrival in France, the Obamas have been enjoyed the idyllic town of L'Isle-sur-la-Sorgue, with Malia and Sasha spotted in the famous market.  
On Sunday, which was Father's Day, the family spent plenty of time together, with Sasha and Malia joining their parents for a celebratory dinner at the Michelin-starred La Mirande restaurant in Avignon.  
Earlier in the day, Michelle and Barack visited Palais des Papes, the biggest gothic palace in the world, where they enjoyed a tour of the historic site - and took time to snap pictures of the property and its stunning scenery.

Sasha is reportedly set to start at the University of Michigan in the fall. The teen opted not to follow in Malia's footsteps by attending an Ivy League school by allegedly turning down a place at Yale. Her 20-year-old sibling is currently enrolled at Harvard.

So if they're having a charity dinner to raise money for their foundation, I wonder who else is invited. There have to be at least a few more people. It can't just be them and the Obamas. Smile

My thoughts exactly Lizzy. Some pretty amazing benefactors, but given George's character it'll pro-bably be really eclectic. Bono? Kerry? Christine Lagarde, Lapo Elkinn maybe...Armenian friends, Bill Gates? The list goes on.....fascinating...three lawyers already at the table of course

With a chance to mingle with the former President I would think it would be an interesting guest list. Quite the event. Hope we get a tidbit or two about the Obama visit.

Are the Obamas lawyers? I know they've studied law, but are they lawyers?

I saw the piece on TMZ on tv. They mentioned the dinner with Bono in France but didn't say a word about tomorrow's dinner with George. I bet Bono will be there, too. I'd love to be a fly on the wall tomorrow night.

Oh, and here's the place they went to with Bono - in a fortified hilltop town overlooking the Mediterranean

[size=30]Obama arrived in Laglio (video)[/size]


[size=30]THE VIDEOS of the caravan of cars[/size]


[size=30]towards Villa Oleandra[/size]


[size=30]The former US president landed at Malpensa, then the 10-car caravan arrived at 2.31pm at Villa Oleandra. The country is manned by at least 50 agents. And from the paparazzi.[/size]






[size=30]Here we are, the big moment has arrived: Barack Obama is at Villa Oleandra di Laglio from his friend George Clooney. The caravan of cars with the former president of the United States, his wife Michelle and his two daughters Malia and Natasha arrived in Laglio at 2.31pm for a weekend that has already been around the world.[/size]

[size=30]A very important date for all of Lake Como, destined to write a piece of history of the territory and to take on a further international relevance, with all the (tourist) repercussions all too easy to imagine.[/size]

[size=30]If nothing else, for Laglio it is simply an incredible event. The former president of the United States of America will spend three days of vacation right here, at the villa Oleandra of his friend George Clooney, starting today (around noon) until Monday. A waiting time of one exact week, when the news of the arrival of the illustrious guest was announced exclusively by “La Provincia. And if until Thursday the situation in the village remained rather quiet, yesterday there was a real invasion of envoys from all over Italy and paparazzi, ready to take the photo of the year.[/size]

PAN, Thanks for the link to La chèvre d’or.  Wow.  How exquisite!

Thanks annemarie for the translated article.


Beyond the fundraising talk I wonder how much chatter there will be about Trump and the 2020 election.

It is crazy how much security they travel with. But, it is also understandable with nothing being kept secret the danger is real unfortunately.

So a couple of swimmers went a bit too near the house for the police

Then the paps all got on a small boat when they thought the Clooneys and Obamas were going out on the lake...

And George had a problem with the swimming pool water not heating up...

With so many boats out on the lake I would think it’s a bit of taking your life in your own hands if you go swimming in that area.

Funny report of the pool malfunctioning and the neighbors being upset that all the Gardeners were working at George’s villa last week scratch Are gardeners that scarce in Como that George gets criticized for monopolizing all of them? And the comment from George supposedly speaking of Obama that he’s a tanned guy who doesn’t like cold water? Kinda of a odd thing to say. Shocked

Around 8:50 pm, the American actor and former US president, with their families, left the marina in front of Villa Oleandra, in Laglio, at high speed on a speedboat

Evening boat trip on Lake Como for George Clooney and Barack Obama. Around 8:50 pm, the American actor and former US president, with their families, left the marina in front of Villa Oleandra, in Laglio, at high speed on a speedboat. Behind them a police boat.

Obama's visit to Clooney's villa
Barack Obama, his wife Michelle and their daughters arrived Saturday, June 22, around 2.30pm at Villa Oleandra di Laglio, on Lake Como, owned by the actor (LE FOTO DELL'ARRIVO). The former tenant of the White House with the family should stay on the Lario bank until Monday 24 June. The mayor of Laglio has issued a series of ordinances in which he has prohibited the transit, parking and navigation around the villa on the shores of the lake. Clooney's heavily armored house is constantly manned by the police.

The Obama family in Como: the police preside over Villa Oleandra, Clooney's home. VIDEO
During the visit of the former US president with his wife Michelle and his daughters, the now famous actor's residence is patrolled both by land and lake from the agents. Objective: to avoid incursions of onlookers and paparazzi

The photos of the arrival THE VIDEO
The weekend continues at Villa Oleandra, the home of George Clooney in Laglio (Como), for the Obama family (THE PHOTOS OF ARRIVAL - THE VIDEO). The former president of the United States arrived with his wife Michelle and his daughters on Friday at around 2.30pm at Villa Oleandra and should stay until Monday.

Strict order service
A certainly unusual presence for the small town overlooking the lake, but despite the attempts of the curious the police are doing everything to protect the tranquility of the guests of Clooney: in addition to controls, even with dogs, by land, the agents also perform patrols via the lake, with rafts and jet skis, all around the villa. In line with the provisions of the first citizen, who with a series of orders has prohibited the transit, parking and navigation around the villa on the shores of the lake.

Any mention anywhere of who else attended the fundraiser? There's still nothing in the press here. I guess because drumpf is trying to start WW III.

Barack Obama and George Clooney Take a Boat Ride in Italian Lake
The Clooneys and the Obamas to arrive in Laglio 0623-george-clooney-obama-splash-4Barack Obama is continuing his European vacation with a stop in Italy -- where he and George Clooney are taking suited-and-booted boat rides together ... comfortably, of course.
The former POTUS was spotted getting off a vessel with his actor pal Sunday near a dock on Lake Como in Cernobbio. It's a gorgeous area at the foot of the Alps -- right next to Switzerland's southern border -- and 44 and George were dressed for the occasion.
The Clooneys and the Obamas to arrive in Laglio 0623-george-clooney-obama-splash-7Both guys were wearing jackets and dress pants -- but neither appear to be rockin' ties, as their collars are open and unbuttoned. Gotta keep it business caj for those Italian lake views, right? No sign of MichelleAmal or the kids here ... might've just been a bro sesh.
Barack and his fam were seen in the south of France earlier this week, where they grabbed dinner with friends ... and Barack showed off his many faces of delight at the table. A few days later, they kept the dream vacay going by hanging out with Bono and co. 
The Clooneys and the Obamas to arrive in Laglio 0619-obama-family-in-france-gallery-main-bg-9At this rate, there's no telling which famous faces the Obamas will be meeting with next. *Checks Rolodex for celebs that stay in Europe* ... lots more to come, probably.
