According to the Examiner, Peter Facinelli is about to become an Italian citizen. He is actually going to have dual citizenship. According to the Examiner:
“While Facinelli’s decision to become a dual citizen of the United States and Italy may not have been entirely based on his role as Lucciola in The Absinthe Drinkers, it most likely did play a part in motivating the timeliness of that decision. Financing for The Absinthe Drinkers requires adherence to a European Union Convention which requires that all principal cast members, such as Peter Facinelli, be European Union nationals.”
So, Peter may not get to go to sunny Italy as part of New Moon, but he will as part of The Absinthe Drinkers.
