Farmacia Gigli [Gigli Pharmacy]

The Gigli Pharmacy, situated not far from the Bottari Pharmacy, boasts an ancient tradition. Originating as a pharmaceutical laboratory in the 19th century, only later, in 1919, did it become a pharmacy. Of its antique furnishings there remains a natural wood counter completed by a marble top, while some of the pharmaceutical objects are kept at the homes of the owners.
