The "vintage" outbreak influenced society, cinema, literature, TV, technology, food, art, fashion and the world of travel. Commerce requires new dedicated spaces, to satisfy the increasing demand. "Vintage, fashion that lives twice!" is the answer.

For years the event has attracted a passionate and sharp public, collectors, fashion workers and stylists looking for peculiar products to revive, mixing tradition with new purposes.

The fair is about the period between the 20s to the 80s with fashion, modern stuff, collection pieces, perfumes, historical dresses, design pieces; the objects used in those years and the way they had been abandoned, reused, kept, resold, especially for the market which has originated from them and for collectors. As always, the protagonist of the festival will be clothing and everything linked to it: collection dresses, purses and accessories by the big brands of international fashion, timeless jewels: these are some of the most valuable products searched for by the big public, as much as by the fashion workers.

The areas of the event, developed on 5000 square meters of expositions, are Vintage, Remake, Collection and Design.

Vintage fashion
Modern stuff
Interior design


The main area is focused on the clothing and the accessories of the last century. These heirlooms, called Vintage, are now cult objects which characterized an era and remained in the collective memories, also thanks to their high quality and the opportunity to reinvent a personal, peculiar and vivid style today.

Vintage is not only a synonym of the past or the nostalgia of a time that won’t return, but it is a new way to look at the future. In this area, creative dressmakers, small artisan businesses and designers sell their creations, a new elaboration of old or unused materials, such as fabric, wool, wood, wallpaper or pvc: everything reborn in a new shape and colour.

Modern stuff and Design
This area is focused on the design of the 20th century and modern stuff. The things created during those years, a result of the designers’ talent, were inserted into industrial production in order to enter homes and become part of daily life.
