Bottega Verde, Passion for cosmetics and natural beauty
Mirca Serri arrived to DR in June 2008 running from the frenetic pace of Italy and looking for a better quality of life for her family. She quickly adapted and has never stopped in their different professional stages in the country.
She travels to her native Modena whenever it is possible and returns home with all Bottega Verde products for skin and hair care. The idea of opening a shop Bottega Verde in Punta Cana comes from her own needs, offering both residents and tourists the benefits of natural products.
