Indipendenza Antiquaria

Held once a month on the Piazza Indipendenza, just a few steps away from Florence Cathedral, the antique fair Indipendenza Antiquaria is one of the most important antique fairs in Italy, hosting over 100 specialized professional antique dealers from all over Italy

Indipendenza Antiquaria, is a specialized antique fair organized once a month by Confesercenti Firenze, in Florence, Italy.

This antique Fair was originally held back in 2001 in the gardens of the Fortezza da Basso, to which it owes its original name “Fortezza Antiquaria” – also known back then as Fortezza da Basso Antique Market. It then moved to Piazzale Vittorio Veneto to make room for the extension of tramway line 1. Finally, in 2018 the fair officially moved to the gardens of Piazza Indipendenza, 500 metres away from Santa Maria Novella Station, under the name “Indipendenza Antiquaria”.

Every month, over 100 specialized professional antique dealers travel to Florence from various parts of Italy. All these years they have attracted and kept loyal customers, both Florentine and non-Florentine, making “Indipendenza Antiquaria” one of the most important antique fairs in a public area at a national level.

This charming little historic vintage and antique market will take you on a journey back in time. The items on sale at Indipendenza Antiquaria range from furniture to small costume jewellery, but also traditional Florentine artefacts, ideal to take with you as a souvenir of your holiday. On a broader scale, you will find antique furniture, coins, philately, books, prints, paintings, sculptures, modern antiques, porcelain, precious vintage accessories, unique pieces, and collectables.

The central location of Piazza Indipendenza, just a few steps from Florence Cathedral, also make for an enchanting setting for a walk among the delightful market stalls.

"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."
