Who we are
The international pharmacy, founded in 1823, is one of the oldest businesses in the charming town of Stresa, known internationally as “The Pearl of Lake Maggiore”.
During the stay of Princess Margherita of Savoy, the Pharmacy was awarded the title of official supplier of the Duchess of Genoa.
The current owner, Dr. Giuliano Antonio, with his wife Daniela, has been working since 1987 and with the experience acquired in over 35 years, has been able to transform the pharmacy over time to cope with market changes and new customer needs. In fact, the pharmacy has evolved into the pharmacy of services, adapting to the digitization that has also affected the pharmaceutical sector. In fact, telemedicine and the electronic prescription system have been implemented, which has made it possible to streamline traditional procedures.
Also authorized by Legislative Decree 219/2006, the pharmacy has extended its normal activity, integrating it with the wholesale trade license which has allowed it to be able to expand its supplier and customer portfolio, allowing it to have sometimes missing drugs available on the national territory. This allowed to guarantee the therapeutic continuity of the patients.
The competence and professionalism of the staff have brought added value over time recognized locally, becoming a reference for the resident and international population. In fact, the tourist district of the Lakes annually hosts hundreds of thousands of tourists who often go to the pharmacy and promptly find a solution to their needs.
