Livin' la dolce vita! Richard Gere hit the town this week with his rumored new girlfriend, Alejandra Silva, squiring her to the 61st Annual Taormina Film Festival in Taormina, Sicily.

The duo attended the Shiseido and Vanity Fair Gala Dinner together on June 17, and were also photographed looking affectionate at the beach on the Italian island on June 20.

Gere, 65, was in Taormina to accept an award at the annual film fest, which brought stars including Patricia Arquette, Ellen Pompeo, and Rupert Everett to Sicily.

Prior to stepping out with Spanish socialite Silva, 32, the Pretty Woman actor was most recently linked with Padma Lakshmi. Gere began seeing the Top Chef host in the spring of 2014; they split later that same year.

The Arbitrage star has also been married twice, to Cindy Crawford in the 1990s and to Carey Lowell in 2002. He and Lowell, who share a teenage son, Homer, have been separated since 2013.
