After many years the Viterbo Antiques Fair has finally returned to its original seat-the prestigious Papal Palace – a worthy setting for the magnificent pieces exhibited and group of high level dealers gathered from all parts of the Italian peninsula.
For a view of the opening ceremony and more photos see my recent blog post
Archeoares, the young equipe who manage the Museum complex (Duomo, Museum del Colle and the Papal Palace ) are in charge of the ticket counter and overlook the security and give the Fair a youthful presence. The Fair is spread out over three levels of the ancient palace with well designed stands offering visitors an wide view of antique objects and how they can fit in today’s home.
Classic furnishings, art , paintings, mirrors, maps and prints, as well as art deco, 1930s ceramics and lighting fixtures from the 1950s: something for every taste and budget.
The older generation of dealers manned the exhibits during the quiet weekdays, while enforcements from the younger generation were on hand during the weekends as larger crowds of visitors descended from nearby Rome.
