The historic center of Chiavari, a Ligurian town overlooking the Gulf of Tigullio, is the regular setting of the Mostra mercato di Chiavari, a thriving antique market established in 1984. Once a month, close to and around the medieval center of the city, the Mostra mercato di Chiavari gathers together exhibitors from Central and Northern Italy, France and Germany, who come to offer a wide range of quality vintage, antique and collectible items for sale.

The Mostra mercato di Chiavari has become quite the cultural event of the region, as well as a must-see market for antique dealers and collectors. In piazza Mazzini to coincide with the antique market, Chiavari hosts the exhibitions of artists and creative “Street Artists”, making the area a popular destination for locals and tourists alike and creating an incredible atmosphere that is not to be missed!

Antique dealers, and of course a fair amount of junk dealers, enliven the streets of the historic center for two whole days each month for the Mostra mercato di Chiavari. Thanks to the presence of the characteristic arcades, this market can be enjoyed whatever the weather, which is great as it is staged year-round. It is also possible to visit the shops in the historic center which are open on Sundays, in conjunction with the Mostra mercato di Chiavari.

On the stalls can be found goods of all kinds: from small ornaments of little value to precious antique furniture of the eighteenth century. There are also chests, cabinets and tables of the nineteenth century; some railings and the famous and very light chairs of Chiavari. Among the objects worthy of observation are corkscrews from the last two centuries, plates and decorated ceramics of Albisola from the fifties, as well as other curious objects such as watertight lamps.

Another important feature of the Mostra mercato di Chiavari is the presence of professional booksellers who offer nineteenth and early twentieth-century pieces, as well as antique prints and original maps, some of which are very antique. Amazement is guaranteed for all those who visit the Mostra mercato di Chiavari.

"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."
