Farmacia Codecą [Codecą Pharmacy]

The pharmacy was founded in the second half of the 19th century, probably by the pharmacist Luigi Codecą. The present-day furnishings date from the late 19th and early 20th centuries, except for the sales counters, which are modern. Some of the furnishings may date from the time when the pharmacy was founded. Of the original pharmaceutical equipment there remain some fine jars from the Ginori manufactory, glass bottles of various make and a precision scale.
