Messages from the past in Arezzo’s Antique Fair

The Arezzo Antique Fair (Fiera Antiquaria di Arezzo) is one of the largest and most beautiful fairs in Italy to be dedicated to antiques and vintage objects. First held in 1968, it was launched by Tuscan collector Ivan Bruschi and soon became an unmissable monthly event, filling the Medieval city’s Piazza Grande with adventures every first weekend of the month. Adventures of discovery, luck and serendipity, surrounded by sought-after or unexpected treasures.

‘What is it, do you think? said Julia. ‘I don’t think it’s anything – I mean, I don’t think it was ever put to any use. That’s what I like about it. It’s a little chunk of history that they’ve forgotten to alter. It’s a message from a hundred years ago, if one knew how to read it.’

The Arezzo Antique Fair is the perfect place to intercept what George Orwell saw as messages from the past in his famous “1984”, and to embrace the surprise of the unexpected.
