Acqua del Casentino Eau de parfum for men, handcrafted by the Dominican nuns of Pratovecchio.

By ancient tradition common to all monastic communities, both male and female, in the Monastery, in addition to the activities of embroidery, pyrography, creation of illuminated manuscripts, there has always been an Apothecary where medicinal liqueurs, lactovari (medicinal compounds with honey and sugar) and other specific preparations based on "simple" or officinal herbs were produced grown in the monastery garden or wild herbs gathered in the woods. These medicines were intended both for internal use in the Monastery as well as for sale to the public.

The practice of apothecary in the monasteries of both sexes was in fact of ancient date and universally widespread and that of "Apothecary" or of "Aromataria" was a task regularly present in female monasteries.

The rediscovery of the preparations of the Ancient Spice Shop of the Monastery of Santa Maria della Neve and San Domenico originates from this age-old tradition, both in the cosmetic field , both healthy and that today the Dominican nuns re-propose.
