The Volturi are invading the red carpet.

The vampire clan starring in the highly anticipated second installment of the "Twilight" series are expected to be greeted by a crowd of fans at the Rome Film Festival, where scenes from "The Twilight Saga: New Moon" are being screened ahead of the official release next month.

Actors Cameron Bright, Charlie Bewley and Jamie Campbell Bower will be followed on the carpet by a team of flag weavers from Volterra, the Tuscan village the Volturi call home.

Scenes from the modern-day love story between a sensitive schoolgirl and a century-old, immortal vampire, this time with werewolves on the prowl, are screening in Rome on Thursday.

The movie, popular with teen and older audiences alike, opens Nov. 20.
