In 1561 the herbalist and chemist Domenico di Vincenzo di Domenico Brunetti, member of the Guild of Physicians and Drugists moved his business to a former Apothecary’s premises owned by the Benedictine Nuns of S. Nicolò. This is the first record mentioning the birth of Farmacia SS Annunziata.

The apothecary which was documented in 1561 still exists, with white ceilings and dark wooden shelves decorated with apothecary jars from the 1800’s. Although it preserves its old traditions, the pharmacy uses modern machinery and new materials to make high quality, customized products.
