Piazza Vittorio - Farmacia 1


As promised yesterday, this photo shows how the pharmacy looks inside. When I asked to the pharmacist permission to take some photos, he replied: "All photo you need"(!!) and quickly went in the back-shop letting me free of the main room...
Of course, as usual, you'll get the best, enlarging the photo

Come promesso ieri, questa foto mostra la farmacia al suo interno. Quando chiesi permesso per effettuare qualche foto, il farmacista rispose: "Tutte le foto che desidera"(!!) e velocemente si ritirò nel retro...
Naturalmente e come di norma, si ottiene il meglio ingrandendo la foto

Now this was worth waiting for. It looks like the main desk of a very chic hotel ! The wood is so rich and lovely and all the embellishments over the doors is amazing. Not like any drug store here in the states. Oh how I wish I could visit your beautiful city.

What a beautiful shop. I love the old jars and the statue in the corner. You've also got the pharmacist in the photo. All I've seen of Torino is the short walk from the bus to the railway station. Really wish I'd stayed and had a look around. Next time (one day I'll be able to afford to go back).

e a proposito di farmacie, (ma nn c'entra poi così tanto con la foto, sorry), in quella di via roma c'è un farmacista che mi ricorda tantissimo carlo verdone quando in "bianco, rosso e verdone" interpretava furio. la prossima volta che ci capito gli chiedo se mi dice forte un "magda, magdaaaaa!"...

What a beautiful pharmacy!

All we have here are drugstores with no imagination whatsoever.

What a beautiful shop. The work and detail is extraordinary. I adore the light fitting and that beautiful glass.

How kind the shopkeeper allowed you to photograph. So often they won't. Great photo as always, Fabrizio.
