This weekend marked another of Arezzo’s awesome attractions: the monthly Fiera Antiquaria. It is Italy’s oldest and largest antiques fair with the entire center of town – like here in Piazza Grande – transformed into a gigantic open air market.
Merchants sell everything from vintage jewelry, books, paintings, furniture and linens.
We have never bought anything of substance really. A Pinocchio wood-block print here, an antique toy there, a vintage deck of playing cards for Scotty. The giant armoires, tables and bronze statues will have to wait.
Although yesterday, Lulu really thought she needed a spare part for a chandelier. You never know.
Maybe an antique mirror. To reflect our new adventures.
Because, in life, as with chandelier bobbles, you just never know.
We love you, Arezzo.
