  • A place suspended in time, mysterious and steeped in history. A place that tells the greatness in scientific and medical discoveries of a city and its people. A wonderful place to say the least. Thanks to anyone who takes "care" with commitment and dedication. A place that will delight young and old alike ...

  • Historical pharmacy degli incurabili is really nice, rich in history. I went with some girlfriends, and I highly recommend a visit! Shame about the lack of advertising and the lack of funds needed to restore it.

  • Within the complex of the historical Ospedale degli Incurabili, still active as a hospital complex, there is a museum managed by an Association of experienced surgeons and medical volunteers, which also includes the maintenance of the Historical Pharmacy. The maintenance and preservation of the finds is currently guaranteed only by a modest entrance fee required by the Association. The visit, however, is an excellent experience. Pharmaceutical and surgical findings in addition to interesting antique, kept in the pharmacy, the Museum has also collected the most recent Neapolitan sensitivity on public health and care of the suffering people of every class and condition. The incredible crib degli incurabili which can be visited in the Museum, contains works of art on figurines depicting sick and curators of each era: by dead reckoning the mentally ill from implants for every part of the human body, to the problems of motherhood illegitimate. Perhaps not everyone knows that the old Ospedale degli Incurabili also contained a secret section of Gynecology specialist and an orphanage for destitute children. Gorgeous crib, there are archetypal characters from the worlds of theatre and Commedia dell'arte, as a splendid Dottor Balanzone astride a donkey and an awesome doctor of the Plague with his big beaked mask to place those bandages with greasing disinfectants. Surely you know!
