The walls tell... | "Ancient pharmacy" (I muri raccontano... | «Antica spezieria»)
Among the many shops in the La Villa district, the "good" district of Fontanile, located between the Porta Maestra and the Porta S. Rocco, there was the Spezieria which was at the same time a pharmaceutical laboratory and a resale of herbs, spices and drugs.
The apothecary, considered a somewhat alchemist astrologer, prepared the medicines and potions himself.

The walls tell... | Project information
The municipal project "I muri raccontano..." (The walls tell...) is a major camouflage of the town created by Luigi Amerio: through pictorial art, the walls and house facades represent Fontanile's past from the Middle Ages to the present day.
