In the Pharmacy Lab Foletto's Museum there are coils, pestels, mortars and other lab instruments, which has been used since 1900. In the Foletto's Museum you can also taste liqueurs and fruit syrups, such as the famous Picco Rosso.
On request guided visits to discover the history of the museum and the family Foletto.
On display in this museum you can find some equipment and implements which tell the story of the Foletto laboratory, dating from the early 20th century. This lab, set up and managed behind the pharmacy business was a veritable pharmaceutical plant in those pioneering years, albeit on a small scale. The output of the facility was varied and plentiful, ranging from injectable phials to fruit syrups by way of many registered medicinal specialities. But two world wars and changing times saw much of the lab equipment fall into disuse, giving way to the industrial products of the present day.
The Foletto pharmacists continue to produce their syrups and liquors with the same care and professionalism they have shown for over a century.
We invite you to visit this little museum, which enshrines affection and nostalgia for genuinely handmade things, for a ‘taste' of times past and present.
