Antiques and party in the streets of Sarzana

“The attic in the street”: antiques and party in the streets of Sarzana

The oldest Antiquarian Exhibition in Italy, now in its 55th edition, returns from 3 to 18 August 2019 in the magnificent setting of the historic center of Sarzana. Like every year, from the first Saturday of August for two weeks, the entire historic center of Sarzana becomes the “Soffitta nella strada”, a large outdoor antique market. Hundreds of exhibitors from all over Italy offer a wide variety of art objects, furniture, jewelery, bijoux, watches, books, antique prints, toys and all kinds of collectibles, giving fans and tourists the pleasure of rediscovering curiosities or antique pieces who, over time, have formed the identity of our Italy. Ample space also for Modernity and quality Vintage.


The 2019 edition of the “Soffitta nella strada”, the traditional antiques, modern and vintage market in the streets of the historic city center, will take place from 3 to 18 August 2019.

As usual, the desks will remain open from 5pm until midnight.

“La Soffitta nella strada” was born in Sarzana in 1974, thanks to the idea and commitment of local operators in the sector, and over the years has become one of the most important events of the “Estate Sarzanese”.

Sarzana: the streets of our historic center are transformed, they wake up from the torpor of the long winter to welcome tourists and ancient wares in the splendid architectural setting of this wonderful Ligurian town. for fifteen days, for fifteen evenings, the streets resemble a bazaar from other times, from other places, where one can find, see and even buy objects, tastes of past sensations, offered by professionals and different professionals, as are their different provenances.

Between spring and summer there are over 120 events in the Sarzanese territory fielded by the municipal administration, 70 of which will take place in the period June-September. A very rich poster that as the mayor Cristina Ponzanelli remarked, proposes to citizens and tourists a Sarzana full of demonstrations, occasions of amusement but also of deepening. The program includes concerts, literary initiatives, conferences and art exhibitions with very different proposals.
