It’s quite difficult to fit Dammos description in one sentence, as well as it’s hard for us to fit in only one country. We are happy to share with you our activity and places we visit while we are working in Lithuania. Meanwhile we invite you to follow our adventures in Italy! We are proud to introduce you an amazing spot in Turin..
Farmacia Algostino & Demichelis | Turin
Like all the wonderful things, this amazing, historical pharmacy has emerged unexpectedly. We could not hide the pleasant fascination that grew with every second of the visit. Each detail raised our curiosity. Although the rooms are not large, they are full of history and culture. Not surprisingly, the pharmacy has opened the door at a similar time, as an impressive Piazza Vittorio Square was built (1825-1830 according to the Giuseppe Frizzi project). Farmacia Algostino & Demichelis was founded by dr. Algostino, whose family still owns a pharmacy. Pharmacy premises expanded in the 1980s, when they were supplemented by the Binfa perfumery area which was next door to the pharmacy. This part has strongly attracted our attention, because it’s a charming corner full of beauty products.
However, empty walls are rarely interesting, it’s people who give the value to all the places. Current host of these historically beautiful locals is dr. Mario Gallo, who, with great devotion and concern, takes care about the family tradition. Just the way how he responds about this place makes you understand how precious it is to him. He proudly invited us to go inside, he showed us the main pharmacy space filled with antique furniture and details, also invited us to the laboratory. The real miracles are born behind the walls of the pharmacy. That’s where dr. Mario Gallo has created the exclusive cosmeceuticals line GAELIS, whose main mission is to combine high quality and effective ingredients turning them into an exclusive care product. Although these are only the first steps of collaboration between Dammos and Farmacia Algostino & Demichelis, our heart feels that we can call this place a temporary home in Turin.
