Professional operators of this sector participate in this special market, a special opportunity to appreciate the value of vintage works and antiques. In Castiglion Fiorentino, every fourth Sunday of the month, there is a curious and fun exchange market for second-hand items and antiques, the "Piazza del Collezionista": the historic center of the village comes alive and the small handicraft of the area descends here together with cultural and folk events, with tastings of typical local products, all in the antique atmosphere that the village offers.
