VANCOUVER - Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart are re-united under the Italian sun, far from the soggy streets of Vancouver, usual home of the Twilight sequel New Moon.
The duo, who play vampire Edward Cullen and his amore, Bella Swan, in the cinematic version of Stephenie Meyer's romantic series, have been accustomed to dodging paparazzi in Canada's West Coast, and frequenting trendy downtown haunts like the Glowbal grill.
But now they will have to put up with the more aggressive shutterbugs in the country that gave the world the term paparazzi, thanks to the news photographer featured in Italian director Federico Fellini's masterpiece, La dolce vita.
Pattinson is having a great spring, having made the scene at the Cannes Film Festival in the south of France before flying to Italy to really make the scene - or scenes - in New Moon.
So it's work that summoned Stewart to team up again with the world's favourite vampire. With her came fellow actress Ashley Greene, but left behind in North America was Taylor Lautner. Apparently the Italian shoots didn't require unrequited werewolves, so Lautner zoomed south to Los Angeles instead.
