The Santa Fina Spezieria

A recovery of th historic sanitary institutions of San Gimignano

via Folgore 11

Located on the first floor, the Santa Fina Spezieria, annexed to the hospital of the same name in 1253, was organized in two connected spaces which includes the shop and a laboratory for the production of medicines for the use of the hospital itself.

The installation proposes an attentive recovery of the decorations and furnishings of the historic sanitary institutions of San Gimignano. There are several samples of glass forms dated to the
16th-18th centuries and made locally; and precious farmacy vases from the 15th-18th centuries which still contain the substances which were used in the preparation of medicines and which still greet visitors with their beneficial aromas.
