Richard Gere, the famous Hollywood actor, has been a world ambassador for the PORCELANOSA Grupo for more than a year, and furthermore, he has seen at first-hand what the firm’s central facilities in Vila-real are like. As well as that, he arrived accompanied by his current partner, the Galician entrepreneur, Alejandra Silva.
Both enjoyed a pleasant visit, in which they had direct contact with both the workers and some of their relatives, and this was finished off by several pictures being taken of the Hollywood actor and his partner with the workers and relatives. Also, the meeting helped both Gere and Silva learn more about the advanced ceramic production processes from the PORCELANOSA Grupo, together with its innovation, technology and cutting-edge design.
On their arrival at PORCELANOSA Grupo in Vila-real, Richard Gere and Alejandra Silva were the centre of attention at the reception held by Mr. Manuel Colonques. The Porcelanosa President was the host, accompanying the actor and his partner throughout their visit.
One of the signs of the friendship between PORCELANOSA Grupo and Richard Gere was the actor's desire to visit the firm’s central facilities in Vila-real for the very first time. PORCELANOSA Grupo, for its part, supports the actor in his charitable causes, having already collaborated on several occasions with the charitable foundation that he chairs.
Indeed, Richard Gere and his partner, Alejandra Silva, came to Vila-real from San Sebastian, after presenting, at the prestigious Film Festival in the Basque city, the beneficent feature film 'Invisibles', starring Richard Gere himself.
Also, Richard Gere has previously participated in other featured events for the PORCELANOSA Grupo, such as the flagship store opening in Manhattan. He was also invited by the firm to the gala dinner hosted by Prince Charles at Windsor Castle, a charity event which supported the 'Prince's Trust' foundation.
