Dr. Ettore Florio

Dr. Ettore Florio

(1880 – 1947)

Founder of the first Ettore Florio Pharmacy, created in Porta Capuana (Naples) in 1880, he was the family’s first preparatory pharmacist. The pharmacy was in fact a laboratory where the main activity was the preparation of medicines and remedies for all types of illnesses. In the Neapolitan environment of the time, Ettore Florio was close to figures such as Benedetto Croce, and an anecdote tells secret meetings were held to talk about politics and philosophy right in the pharmacy headquarters.

Dr. Ugo Florio

Dr. Ugo Florio

(1908 – 1991)

Ugo Florio, son of Ettore Florio, was a pharmacist, journalist, medical officer, president of the Neapolitan pharmacists’ union and national vice-president of the same union. He took over his father’s business at the beginning of the 20th century, with a great passion for galenics and the development of new formulas. Despite the advent of industrially produced drugs, his nature led him to add a character of innovation to his activity as a pharmacist- preparator. He moved the pharmacy to Piazza Leonardo, becoming one of the reference pharmacies on the thriving Vomero hill.

Florio expands the galenic activity by also creating cosmetological formulas and further developing the activity of the laboratory, which also specializes in the creation of orphan drugs. The imprint of innovation and, at the same time, of artisan tradition in the composition of medicines and cosmetics remains the family trait.
