Hugo Chávez Greeted as Movie Star in Italy
Mr. Chavez, who was accompanied by 50 bodyguards, played to the crowd, throwing a flower, touching his heart, and, at one point, taking a photographer's camera to snap a picture himself.
Chávez was accompanied by director Oliver Stone, who was premiering his new Chávez documentary, South of the Border.
