Fiera Antiquaria di Arezzo

The Fiera Antiquaria di Arezzo with its 500 exhibitors and 100 shops, is the monthly appointment of flea market enthusiasts in Italy and beyond

The ancient Tuscan city of Arezzo, with its Roman ruins, medieval walls, Renaissance architecture and incomparable Piero della Francesca murals, has always been a magnet for art lovers.

But once a month, when its Piazza Grande is filled with a motley collection of old furniture, musty paintings and stained silverware, tarnished candlesticks and kitchen cabinets, chipped china and violins, Roman coins and a harmonium, old-fashioned telephones and grandfather clocks, Arezzo turns into a lodestone for connoisseurs and bargain hunters.

The Fiera Antiquaria di Arezzo with its 500 exhibitors and 100 little shops open all year round, is, since 1968, an added incentive to visit this art-laden city. This antique fair takes advantage of the extraordinary scenery of Piazza San Francesco, Piazza Grande and the Logge del Vasari, but the stalls spread over the side alleys and squares across the historic center, transforming the character of the city for the two days of the Antique Market.

The Fiera Antiquaria di Arezzo has been for the past forty years, the monthly appointment of flea market enthusiasts in Italy and beyond the country’s borders. In fact, it has been estimated that each edition of the Fiera Antiquaria di Arezzo is visited by an average of 20,000 people, including of course, many tourists.

This antiques and collectors fair has been the first to have a lasting and regular success and it was in past years the scene of real hunting to the best pieces, even the day before the opening of the market, when the best pieces were still packaged on tracks. Exhibitors come from all over Italy and offer their items with a very broad overview of cultural traditions and regional costumes. Besides the outdoor stalls there are antique shops which are an old tradition in Arezzo.

The variety of items found in some shops reflects the same diversity that is found in the stalls: antique furniture, paintings, different fancy items not only for age but also for quality, mixed with no order leaving to the visitor the pleasure of discovery. But some other are the preferred destination for researchers and collectors, with selected pieces and great specialization: old books, scientific instruments, classical archaeology, antique archaeology, antiques & collectibles, antique bottles, liberty windows, art deco objects, jewellery, watches, silverware , 19th and 20th Century paintings, as well as furniture and old time objects.

Lately, in coincidence with each flea market, some initiatives like antique exhibitions and meetings have taken place, with qualified exhibitors proposing some selected pieces within prestigious galleries. The offer is very diverse to meet the needs of the most demanding collectors and art lovers. But also non connoisseurs will have the chance to enjoy the visit to the Fiera Antiquaria di Arezzo: they will find a great choice and also those who, with patience, will give explanations and assurances.

"Reserving flights 8 to 9 months in advance helps me manage my airfare expenses. Even in the best of times, many of the markets I follow in France don't publish their plans that far in advance. Fleamapket provides the newest information, well before I can find it online."
