Coffee to fall in love with! The Lavazza 2011 Calendar, this time with Mark Seliger, Dr. House actress Olivia Wilde and lots of amore mio...

Head over Heels for Italy! The new Lavazza calendar 2011 is all love, coffee all things Italian of course. Star photographer Mark Seliger photographed romantic scenes against wonderfully kitschy backdrops and had the pleasure of entertaining TV's House star Olivia Wilde in front of the camera, as well as her husband Tao Ruspoli, an Italian prince and film director (among others). All for the sake of evoking the ‘Real Italian Espresso Experience’. Americano? No way!

The upcoming calendar is in its 19th edition by now and the photographic Lavazza-sceptre was passed on to Mark Seliger, after being wielded by legends such as Annie Leibovitz and Miles Aldrige beforehand. His colourful pictures radiate with love, such as his recreated balcony scene from Romeo and Juliet, the sundown at Capri or wading the shallow waters of Venice.

“How can you not fall in love with Italy?” jokes actress Olivia Wilde and elaborates: “I never met anybody, who came to Italy and did not go completely bonkers over Italy. Be it the architecture, the people or even the food, it is impossible not to lose your heart to this country.”

Olivia particularly enjoys herself when she was photographed with a cup of espresso in her hand, in her own words: “One more reason why I love Italy, is its coffee culture. I adore good coffee and since marrying an Italian, I became even pickier. I demanded to have an espresso machine on the set of Dr.House. They used to make fun of me in the beginning, but I knew, sooner or later they would thank me for it. And now they all kick-start their day with my espresso.”

Lavazza has been publishing its photo calendar since 1993, which is produced in limited editions and not available in retail. Year after year, the pictures by famous photographers narrate colourful stories revolving around their most sensual delight: Italian coffee!
