Inspiring innovation from tradition


The Institute is devoted to the study of the ancient record of therapeutic practice, particularly the use of plants. Pursuing its innovative strategy of investigation, it does not limit its activity to searching the books that transmitted this ancient knowledge to present day, digitizing these precious and unique remains of the past, and deciphering, computerizing and analyzing their information, but it also includes collecting the plants that made the substance of ancient remedies.

It is often assumed that knowledge on medicinal plants was preserved by women more than by men. How about a confrontation between history and current practice?
