Casa del Profumo Feminis - Farina

Map

“Casa del Profumo” is the new museum centre that pays tribute to the history of Aqua Mirabilis. A collection of testimonies that take the visitor on a discovery of emigration from Vigezzo and of the history of the Eau de Cologne, whose formulation was devised by Giovanni Paolo Feminis, a native of Crana, a small hamlet of Santa Maria Maggiore, who emigrated to Cologne at a very young age. Important for the success of the medicinal water, which went on to become a successful perfume was the support of a merchant from Vigezzo who had emigrated to Maastricht, Giovanni Maria Farina, who marketed it.
