Farmacia Serafini di Fucecchio [Serafini Pharmacy in Fucecchio]

Founded near the end of the 19th century in Piazza Montanelli, the pharmacy has occupied its present site since 1957. The furnishings, dating from the late 19th century, have been adapted to their new surroundings. Two more cabinets in the same style have been added, and the counter has been partially remodelled. The pharmacy represents an interesting and successful integration of antique furnishings and new sales requisites. Of the antique pharmaceutical equipment, there remain some fifteen jars and a bronze mortar.
