ANTIQUES MARKET IN DESENZANO
Desenzano del Garda as far back as its origins from the 1400s but also in Roman times, given the evidence of the Roman villa, it was a center rich in commercial and merchant activities related to its position.
The strategic position has favored not only commercial exchanges but also cultural exchanges between populations, giving the inhabitants of the town of Desenzano the possibility of cultural enrichments linked to different uses, customs and traditions. This has fostered particular attention which in more recent times has turned into a great tourist and cultural offer for users.
These elements are still present and are still found today and have promoted the birth of the "Antiques Market".
The rich cultural and artistic proposal linked to the world of antiques has been enriched in the last four years by a new summer event "A world of Vintage" with new proposals always attentive to the re-presentation of objects of the past full of charm and history to tickle our curiosities.
The antique market of Desenzano is set up from 9:00 to 19:00 in the central Piazza Malvezzi, around the Old Port and creates with the Venetian Bridge a special setting for this "living room" which is renewed every first Sunday of the month from May to December.
Among the eighteenth-century Russian icons, old printed books, vinyls and French dolls, you can find the right object at realization prices.
In the six summer months from May to October, the Antiques Market doubles with "A world of Vintage", with a demonstration held on the Saturday preceding the antiques market from 08:00 to 20:00.
During the events all the shops, bars and restaurants in Desenzano are open to offer the visitor every useful service for the success of a Sunday between culture and curiosity.
Here is the 2020 calendar:
Hours: from 9:00 to 19:00.
