Amal Clooney will receive an award for her work for victims of human rights abuse around the world at Diane von Furstenberg's 14th annual DVF Awards Thursday
After George, 62, and Amal, 45, were spotted out in Venice on Tuesday, the couple were seen dining at a local hotspot, Ristorante Da Ivo, ahead of their attendance at an event in the city on Thursday.
The Ocean's Eleven star was seen stepping out of a boat in the Venetian canals in a dark blue suit, while Amal wore an emerald green dress and dangling earrings out to dinner.
The couple, who own a home on Lake Como in Northern Italy, are in Venice this week for Diane von Furstenberg's 14th Annual DVF Awards, at which Amal will be honored on Thursday with a DVF leadership award for her global work for victims of human rights abuse, according to a press release shared with PEOPLE.
Amal, a human rights attorney, and the Oscar winner, have been married since 2014. The couple share 6-year-old twins Ella and Alexander; they also share a passion for humanitarian causes and created the Clooney Foundation for Justice together.
The couple were spotted arm-in-arm while on a walk in Venice earlier in the day Tuesday, looking relaxed and incognito in sunglasses as they held hands and smiled for the cameras while walking to their car.
