For lovers of antiques, there is a splendid antique market held in Ascoli Piceno on the third weekend in every month. The market, set up in the town's splendid medieval centre, in particular Piazza del Popolo and Piazza Arringa, starts at 2pm on Saturday and finishes at 8pm on Sunday. Antiques and collectables - anything from furniture to silver, from jewellery to paintings, from sculptures to objet d'arte - all from the 1700s to the 1900s. Also on sale are carpets, ceramics, artisan-made products and local food sepcialities. The next market is 18 & 19 June, 2011.
