From the peaks of Monte Pigna, in the heart of the Alps, almost 5000 ft above sea level, in Northwestern Italy, the Santa Barbara Spring flows into the town of Lurisia. An extremely low TDS of 30mg/l with a low pH of 6 make up this special healing water.
Legend has it, at the turn of the 20th century, it was a miner who discovered the source: with a blow of a pickaxe, he made water flow from the rock that not only proved to be excellent to drink but also "precious" in healing sores and wounds quickly. His fame spread immediately, attracting the curious and the scholars.
The fame of the "healing water" reached beyond borders and what miners knew from experience by immersing wounds in water to accelerate healing is demonstrated by the Nobel Laureate Madame Marie Curie in 1918 who studies the properties of the rock and attests to the exceptional therapeutic properties of water.
The Lurisia Thermal Spa opens to the public in 1940 revealing the virtue of the water. In 1950 the economic boom for bottled water in glass led to the first industrial bottling plant for Lurisia water. The Spa was purchased in 1996 and renovated by the Invernizzi family. Famous since its foundation for healing and most beneficial, especially for the respiratory system, it is classified as "First Superior Class" in the classification of the Healing Spas.
Today, they are celebrating 80 years of excellence in Italy. It is available in 750ml and 330ml in both still and sparkling natures.
