Hollywood superstar George Clooney is due in Rome on 24 June to donate ten "superscooters" to the Running Heart Foundation. The scooters are designed to get emergency equipment to heart attack victims quickly through traffic-clogged streets, and are equipped with defibrillators, oxygen cylinders, electocardiographs and medicines. Clooney, who shot to fame in the US medical drama "E.R.", said he had decided to make the donation because Rome is one of his favourite cities. He has been the face of the Running Heart project since 2001, when he launched the campaign in Milan.
