Buonconvento 2 ANTIQUE FAIR near SIENA


XXX Antique fair -  things from the past


Beginning date:6th April 2012  Ending date: 9th April 2012

The antique fair that usually takes place in Bounconvento over Easter weekend this year comes to it’s XXX edition. Closely linked to our cultural artistic and ethnic traditions, this fair was born with the aim to introduce and promote ancient and modern furnishings, books, pottery, jewelry, carpets etc.

Some of them, the most particular and decorated, are greatly appreciated by antique lovers and dealers, who had collected and restore them giving back their quality and value.

These pieces represent fantasy, talent, and creativeness of craftsmen work.

Buonconvento town council together with traders and craftsmen want to promote this fair as an exhibition, where both foreign tourists and local people could admire our beautiful antiques and make an acquaintance with Siena territory and  taste the best  Val d’Orcia vines as well.
