Walking among antiques

Among Parma, Piacenza and Reggio Emilia, the thousands of opportunities of “Destinazione Turistica Emilia” for the fans of vintage, antiques and modern antiques.

It will be a kind of reaction to the imposition of low-cost furniture that is likely to homologate the interior of houses and flats but the mania for the quest of the exclusive and historical object, which escaped the worry of the space in the basement, seems to be definitely exploded.
The result is that every weekend becomes the occasion to go to the discovery of markets which – especially on Saturday and on Sunday – give a new identity to the squares and streets of Destinazione Turistica Emilia, by offering the fans of vintageantiques and modern antiques, the possibility to know better – or discover for the first time – original corners of Parma, Piacenza and Reggio Emilia and the villages of the province that suddenly come to life, under the lights of a past which continues to shine.
