A whole life

Ricardo Fisas was a remarkable person who inspired many of the people who knew him. Strength, commitment, persistence and humanness are a few of the values Ricardo wove into the fabric of the projects he carried out, including the Ricardo Fisas Natura Bissé Foundation.

His spirit, enthusiasm and positivity, as well as his great warmth, will always be guiding forces for this fascinating humanitarian project, which was created in conjunction with his wife Gloria Vergés, and whose daughters and sons proudly continue. Behind it all there is an endless number of unforgettable moments and stories…
