*Awesome* Thanks, Shire!

P.S. I'm trying to find out if you must be from Italy to apply...if not, maybe I can be an Asian tourist who gets eaten by the Volturi. Whee.

EDIT: Dang. Looks like you gotta have some official Italian 'codice fiscale' to be eligible -- in other words, you most likely must be Italian - and not the kind from Little Italy in NY. Guess I don't have a chance of being eaten after all...


  1. I bet they're beginning casting for the huge crowd scenes. I love it. I'm so jealous!

  2. I feel really sad. I've been looking up flights from London to Perguia (the nearest airport to Montepulciano). The price isn't a problem, it's just the timing. I have an exam late on the 27th and another one early on the 29th and there are no flights in between. Even if I did get over, I would only have a couple of hours to stand in line, for the casting, before my flight home. Darn it!

  3. I would love to go over there. But I'd have to know if I could get in or not. I'd die to be eaten by the Volturi. Wait...that sounded weird didn't it.

  4. hehe. i would look way too happy being eaten by the volturi. oh, that sounds wrong too. hehe

  5. "...too happy being eaten by the volturi..." What's wrong with that? lol Eaten by Robward, well a girl can dream

  6. I'm cracking up sitting here reading the comments and yes I totally agree, a girl can dream!

  7. finally some information :D we will be in italy 22-27.5 and now we know when to go to montepulciano *doing the happy dance* i'm WAY too excited now!!! eaten by the volturi...THAT vould be so cool *lol*

  8. I live in Florence, not far from Montepulciano (I'm norwegian though), and yes you need a codice fiscale to be able to enter the casting, but you don't have to be italian. So any foreigners that live here in Italy, and holds a CD, you can enter. They're casting for the crowd on the Piazza and the group of tourists that gets taken in to become Volturi's lunch.

    I'd love to go, but I'm in school, prepping for my excam. But I'm going out in May though. ;) So stay tuned!
