An evocative itinerary to discover the Ancient Pharmacy of St. Philip Neri, the Charity's Archive and the Jesuit Quarter in Parma. To enrich the itinerary, the Florilegium installation in the St. Tiburzio Oratory.
The Oltretorrente has always been considered the most popular and typical district of Parma, able to surprise for its caleidoscopic spirit and the artistic treasures that this area away from the usual tourist itineraries holds. This is an opportunity that cannot be missed to learn about the history, curiosities and anecdotes of some of the city's most authentic and least known places.
An evocative journey through herbaria, botanical pots and ancient instruments takes us back to the dawn of medicine, from medieval herbalism to the development of pharmacopoeias, from the simples' gardens to the birth of modern botany.
