Farmacia Fredducci [Fredducci Pharmacy]

The pharmacy, founded in 1888 by Dr. Angelo Fredducci, still occupies its original premises and still conserves its furnishings and equipment dating from the late 19th century. The shelves, running along three sides of the sales area, are of fine workmanship; originally painted white, they were stripped to the wood and enhanced by a gold border in 1989. In the same year, a refined sales counter, coming from a pharmacy in Altopascio, was bought.
