Eau de parfum Li Ruscelletti for men, handcrafted by the Dominican nuns of Pratovecchio.

Perfumed water to celebrate the Dante Year 2021 (700 years since the birth of Dante Alighieri). In the XXX canto of the Inferno, the poet recalls the streams of the Casentino: "The streams that of the green hills, of the Casentin descend down to the Arno, making their canals cold and soft" (64-66).

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 was always a Spezieria in which medicinal liqueurs, lactovari (composed medicamentosi with honey and sugar) and other specific preparations based on "simple" that is officinal herbs grown in the monastery garden or wild herbs collected 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 the apothecary in the monasteries of both sexes was in fact of ancient date and universally widespread and that of "Speziala" or of "Aromataria" was a task regularly present in female monasteries.

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