Bellavera Beautytherapy, placed in Piazza Buonarroti, is just far from the idea of the aseptic and minimal esthetic center which we are get used to. The feeling when you go in is being in a cozy and lightful place. Thousand bright-pink bubbles on a wall, sofas, a tisane corner and a neon sign that underline the main mantra of the female thoughts from 18 to 70 years old: #cellulitis.
It’s hard to continue this article without talking about the woman who, for some years now, has created around her name an attention that has been equal to the 80s jingles.
