Maercanteinfiera and its 52.000. Surprisingly, Americans and Northern Europeans are the big spenders in antiques


(Parma, 11 October 2016) – Whether they were the “art possessed”, as expert Vittorio Sgarbi defined the visitors during the TV programme “porta a porta”, or simply aficionados, collectors or just the curious, the gates of this 35th edition of Mercanteinfiera were crossed by 52,000 visitors.

This figure breaks the record set last autumn when visitors reached 51,000. During the nine days of exhibition, the 45,000 square meters of exhibiting area have been trodden by an uninterrupted flow of visitors and buyers who have been enchanted by modern antiques, vintage and antique collectables that have been the true discovery of this edition.
