Aldo Castellani's home

Aldo Castellani lived and worked for more than twenty years in this house of London (33 Harley Street).

As he remembers in his autobiography, "my practice in Harley Street, which extended over twenty years (1920-1940), was of absorbing interest. Not only did it enable me to combine practical work with scientific research, but it gave me an opportunity to make many acquaintances - to meet and know the famous of the land; and I was exceedingly lucky in that my patients usually became my friends. (…) I was then at 33 Harley Street, an attractive but very small house with a tiny hall from which the consulting room was separated by a flimsy wall. In those days I had no butler, and a maid answered door"1.
