The 59th edition of the oldest and most prestigious antiques exhibition in Italy is back. It will take place from August 21st to September 5th in Cortona where collectors and enthusiasts will find valuable and excellent works of art: furniture, porcelain, paintings, wooden and marble statues, gifts and fancy goods and much more. Accompanying the event are numerous cultural and artistic events as well as a collateral exhibition, a precious anthology from a private collection that has now become public and permanent, dedicated to Realism.

The event will take place at the Centro Convegni Sant’Agostino. The characterization of the event is that of a great multifaceted event, which integrates the actual exhibition with moments of meeting between antiquarians, specialists and passionate visitors, who find here works and stories related to them, as a testimony of the level of excellence that Cortonantiquaria proudly expresses. Concerts, conferences, theatrical performances and presentations complete the program, which is carried out safely in compliance with the anti-coveted rules.
