The Embrace Award created by Ceramiche Noi is reconfirmed in Cannes. The award was presented during the gala evening by Berry Alexander Brown (producer of Spike Lee) who received it first last year, before being presented to Her Majesty Queen Angelique Monet (in honor of a community of farmers in Nigeria, which, thanks to the queen, sees its work valued without exploitation). “That we are enthusiastic and proud of us is an understatement: the Embrace Award has officially become an annual recognition that every year will allow us to be present as an official partner at one of the most important events that takes place during the Cannes festival”: the “New Generation in Action”, a recognition in the name of peace and tolerance. It’s Lorenzo Giornelli, commercial director of Ceramiche Noi on his return from Cannes, to comment on the umpteenth success of this cooperative run by working members. Ceramiche Noi only a few years ago had the prospect of closing and relocating the previous property to Armenia, and this year too, it created the Embrace Award, which recalls an embrace that is a symbol of Peace and Hope. A wish to return to embrace and live in peace. During the event, other prizes, always created by Ceramiche Noi, unique handmade pieces with the signature of the artist Luca Baldelli, were given to Jeff Bridges and Claudia Gerini.
