Born in 1968, the Antiquarian Fair of Arezzo has been the first antiquarian manifestation having a regular monthly cadence and a lasting success over the time.
We love to go shopping at the fair, if you like to have more of our tips, don’t hesitate to contact us: info@fontanaro.it 
We’ve bought lot of nice unique vintage furniture here for our homes and all friends love to know the story of each one!

The regular expositors are more than 500 and come from every part of Italy offering with their object a wide view of cultural traditions and regional costumes. Nowadays in Arezzo there are more than 100 antiquarian shops, a number that during thirty years of fair has duplicated, in fact in 1968 there were not more than fifteen antiquarian shops!

In many cases the shops reflect the same heterogeneity that we find in the fair: furniture, drawings and object, all different both for their époque and for their quality are muddled giving to the visitor the pleasure of their discovery.
By the shops of searchers and pickers there are many shops with selected objects that offer more marked specialization for collectors and connoisseurs: furniture and furnishings, still life, religious pictures, drawings of any époque, jewels, watches, silvers, old books and printings, modern antique collecting, scientific instruments, radius and gramophones, musical instruments, toys.

As the American writer Frances Mayes shows in her book “Beautiful Tuscany”, we can affirm that in every house in Arezzo and in many other Italian towns there is an object, a picture or a piece of furniture which has been found and bought in Arezzo Antiquarian Fair, the most old and bigger Italian antiquarian fair.
